Lemon Sugar Crusted Blueberry Muffins

While I was at my mom's in Utah, I had a lemon blueberry muffin from Costco. Naturally, since it was from Costco, it was amazing. That's why I was so struck by this recipe when I saw it on Melanie's blog, My Kitchen Cafe.
And yes, it's a keeper. Next time I think I'll try subbing a couple tablespoons of applesauce for butter, and I'd like to add either some lemon zest or lemon extract straight to the batter. Nonetheless, it's perfect as is, too.

Since the recipe is a bit involved and Melanie explains each step so darn well, I'm just going to send you straight HERE for the recipe.

Need to use up your leftover buttermilk? Try this wonderful buttermilk banana bread (also from Melanie!) and these delightful whole wheat pancakes.

Erica these were sooooo amazing! Peter and I could not get enough of them, which is why I am on here this morning making sure you posted a recipe! I'm a little scared to try them since I know they won't turn out as good as yours :).... but we like them so much I think I will have to! Thanks for sharing them with me! yum yum!

Okay so now a year later I have finally actually tried this recipe. They are to DIE for! I added extra lemon zest in the batter as you suggested, and would have done the applesauce substitute, but I didn't have any on hand. Either way.... I know I'll make them again soon. Thanks for sharing!
