Hi friends, it’s Jackie from TheSeasideBaker.com back with another delicious recipe!
Here’s a bit of a backstory about me. I grew up in between Hawaii and San Diego. I was an exchange student in Switzerland and met the love of my life…and married him! After a few years of living in Switzerland, we moved back to San Diego.
Because all of my husband’s family is in Europe, most of our vacations are back to Switzerland to see family. This past winter we spent a month in the beautiful snow villages in between the Swiss and French Alps.
It was absolutely beautiful, but after about 2 weeks, I missed my sunshine! I could not wait to get home and catch some vitamin D.
So these Lemon Blueberry Streusel Muffins are for all you folks that need a bit of sunshine. After one bite, you can almost taste Spring on the horizon with the scent of the lemon zest.
The fresh blueberries pop while baking creating a mouthwateringly delicious lemon blueberry muffin. Topped with a simple lemon streusel, they have a bit of a crunch, and the drizzle is literally the icing on the cake.

How to make Lemon Zest
- Wash lemon in water and dry
- If you have a microplane, that is ideal, if not a box grater will also work. Worse case scenario, use a vegetable peeler.
- Grate the lemon from top of the grater to bottom and rotate. You want to remove just the outer layer, avoiding the white pith (so just grate each portion one time.)
