Lemon Blueberry Easter Muffins

Easter is coming early this year! Mark your calendars for this Sundary, March 31st. 

What better way to celebrate than with a batch of Lemon Blueberry Easter Cupcakes? These sweet treats are the epitome of Spring baking bursting fresh flavors!

Gather your ingredients, preheat your oven, & let's get baking!



For the Cupcakes:




  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F  & line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter & granulated sugar until light & fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract & lemon zest.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with buttermilk. Begin & end with the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.
  5. Fill each muffin liner about two-thirds full with the muffin batter.
  6. If using homemade filling: Spoon a small amount of the blueberry compote onto the center of each cupcake, gently pressing it into the batter. If using Henry & Henry Blueberry Redipak, skip this step.
  7. Bake the cupcakes for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. While the cupcakes cool, prepare the lemon cream cheese frosting. In a large bowl, whip the Brill Cream Cheese Icing & combine lemon juice, lemon zest, & vanilla extract. Beat mixture until creamy & well combined.
  9. If using Henry & Henry Blueberry filling: Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, cut a small hole on the top of the cupcakes and pipe or spoon a little of the Henry & henry Blueberry filling and replace the piece you cut out on top.
  10. Continue by frosting your easter cupcakes with the lemon cream cheese frosting. 

PRO TIP: You can get creative with your decorating, adding a sprinkle of lemon zest or a few fresh blueberries on top.
