{ Blueberry Muffins topped with Lemony Glaze }

I have tried so many times to make muffins - but for some reason, every recipe I've used before yields a very sad, dense muffin. I came to the conclusion that for some reason, muffins just aren't my forte.

That is, until I tried this recipe from my biggest blog inspiration - LEAFtv.

FINALLY, a fluffy muffin! Honestly, none of their recipes ever disappoint. 
{ And of course, I love their videos. }

These muffins are ultra delicious & super quick to throw together.
{ They don't even require an electric mixer! }

Just combine the dry ingredients - flour, salt, & baking powder - in a large bowl. Form a small well in the center { where your wet ingredients will go. }

In a smaller bowl,
cream your butter and sugar together with a fork. 

Then whisk in the egg until smooth.

Next, mix in the vanilla, milk, & lemon zest until combined.

Pour this wet mixture into the well of the dry ingredients, and stir just until the batter comes together.

Finally, dust your blueberries lightly with flour - so they don't sink to the bottom of the batter - and fold them into the muffin mix.

Grease a muffin tin with butter or coconut oil, and spoon in the batter with an ice cream scoop.

Sprinkle each with a cinnamon & sugar mixture before popping them into the oven at
400 F for 15 minutes.

While the muffins bake, melt & stir together the glaze ingredients - butterlemon juice, and sugar.

Glaze each muffin immediately after they come out of the oven and pop them back in for about 3 minutes, just until the glaze hardens up.

And that's it! 

Warm, fluffy, & lemony blueberry muffins are ready for your breakfast table.
