Lemon cake blueberry muffins

I’m still waiting impatiently for my popsicle cake tin to arrive and in the meantime I decided to share with you the recipe of my lemon cake blueberry muffins. They’re all eaten now, so let’s have a look how we can make some new ones!


BASE (aka the lemon cake bit):

  • 100g butter
  • 100g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 140g flour
  • 1tsp. baking powder

TOPPING (aka the cheese cake bit):

  • 250ml cream
  • 25g icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla sugar

Plus about 50g blueberries to sprinkle over the top of the base and the whole muffin later on.


Grease a muffin tin with butter and cut baking parchment in stripes (approximately 2 to 2,5cm wide) to put them in each hole. The BBC Good Food book (my prime source of inspiration these days) recommends to cross them over, but I find it easier to work with just one strip per hole.

Next step is to make a dough (by beating together butter and sugar, adding eggs, lime juice and finally folding in the flour and baking powder) and to divide it among the prepared muffin holes. Then you sprinkle about half of the blueberries over and bake the whole lot for about 12 minutes at 160 to 180°C. Take them out of the oven, let them cool for about two minutes and gently press down the tops. Before putting them back into the oven, pour the topping over the top.

The muffins should look like this (left pic) and you can put them back into the oven for another 4 minutes. Sprinkle over the remaining blueberries and bake for another 4 minutes. When they’re ready, take them out of the oven, but let them cool in the tin before removing them by grabbing the baking parchment and carefully lifting them out of the tin.

And then… enjoy!

  1. Traci, I absolutely agree: most things go with lemon. I personally don’t like lemon too much, but some things just taste better with a little bit of lemon or lime flavour…

  2. Hihi, ja, so geht es mir auch immer! Deshalb schreibe ich grundsätzlich immer in Gramm-Angaben, alles andere ist mir zu kompliziert. Wobei ich ja neulich erst entdeckt habe, dass man bei meiner Waage auch andere Einheiten einstellen kann… Ja, lass mich unbedingt wissen, wie sie geworden sind!

  3. HA! Ein Rezept mit Gramm Angaben :)) Normalerweise bin ich bei englischen Blogs ja eher dabei, die Angaben krumm und falsch umzurechnen 😀
    Die Muffins werd ich definitiv probieren und sag dir dann Bescheid, wie sie geworden sind 🙂
