This blueberry lemon muffin is probably the best I’ve ever had. After making them, I had to share the recipe with you. They are perfectly golden brown on top, and super moist and deliciously flavorful inside.

It is pointless to go back to a regular blueberry muffin. The muffin gets a bright, fresh flavor from the addition of the lemon zest. The muffins are also enriched with lemon zest, which adds just a touch of color.
