Blueberry Muffins with Lemon-Cream Cheese Glaze aren't your ordinary blueberry muffins! The tart-and-sugary glaze turns plain blueberry muffins into extraordinary blueberry muffins.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries*
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Lemon-Cream Cheese Glaze
  • Garnish: lemon zest

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450º. Stir together first 4 ingredients. Whisk together eggs and next 2 ingredients; add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Toss blueberries with 1 Tbsp. flour, and gently fold into batter. Spoon mixture into 1 1/2 lightly greased 12-cup muffin pans, filling three-fourths full.

  2. Bake at 450º for 14 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned and a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean. Immediately remove from pans to wire racks, and let cool 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, prepare Lemon-Cream Cheese Glaze. Drizzle over warm muffins. Garnish, if desired.

  4. *Fresh blueberries may be substituted.
