Recipe Notes

  • If you'd like these muffins to be gluten-free, use gluten-free flour.
  • I used mascarpone cheese, cream cheese and butter softened at room temperature so they would easily blend together.
  • I prefer to squeeze my own fresh lemon juice, but you can use bottled lemon juice in a pinch.
  • I used almond milk, but you can use your milk of choice.
  • Keep leftover muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it:

  1. To a medium mixing bowl, add the softened mascarpone cheese, cream cheese and butter. Mix well until thoroughly combined.
  2. Add the sugar to the mixture and stir to incorporate.
  3. Add the eggs to the mixture and stir to thoroughly combine.
  4. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice and milk. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  5. To another medium mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until blended.
  6. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until mixture is just combined. Do not over-mix.
  7. Fold in the blueberries until just combined.
  8. Fill greased or lined muffin tins until nearly full with batter.
  9. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow muffins to cool for a few moments before serving.
  10. Serve muffins on their own or with lemon whipped cream.
