24 muffins


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced, divided

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 12 ounces fresh blueberries

For Glaze:

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • ¼ cup hot water

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners.

  2. Stir flour, sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg together in a large bowl.

  3. Whisk buttermilk, oil, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla extract together in a medium bowl. Stir into the flour mixture until just moistened. Fold in blueberries. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer muffins onto a wire rack to cool for about 15 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, combine confectioners' sugar, butter, hot water, vanilla extract, and remaining zest in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.

  6. Dip cooled muffin tops in glaze. Cool until glaze firms up, about 10 minutes. Dip muffins a second time.

Cook's Note:

Placing waxed paper under the cooling racks makes for easy clean up!
