Blueberry Lemon Muffins

Muffins, muffins, muffins.  I love muffins.  You know that by the number of muffin recipes I've posted here at Addicted to Recipes :-)

We are gearing up for back to school, which means I will be back to making muffins each week.  I'm already in planning mode, and was reading through some cookbooks and found a recipe for Raspberry Lemon Muffins in my Taste of Home The Complete Guide to Country Cooking, which I modified a is the recipe:

Blueberry Lemon Muffins
Blueberry Lemon Muffins | Addicted to Recipes

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
2 cups blueberries, washed and dried

Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare muffin cups with paper liners.

Mix together the eggs, half-and-half, oil and lemon zest. 

In a second bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.  Gently stir in the blueberries.  Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden.  Remove from oven and cool.

These were lovely.  A nice, light lemon flavour, which is to my liking.  I am not usually a big fan of lemon flavour, but maybe it is from all those fake lemon flavourings.  There's something about that fresh lemon!  My kids loved these, they inhaled them!
