Glazed Blueberry Lemon Mini Muffins

Breakfast has never been my favorite meal. I'm not sure why, but come morning I'm just not all that hungry, nor interested in much. So long as I have an entire pot of coffee (to myself) I'm pretty much good to go.

Brunch, however? Yes. Give me all the brunch items.

I'm not sure what it is, but when I think brunch I think little foods. Like, mini donuts, mini muffins, mini everything. Maybe it's because I want to taste test all the things during brunch.

When the prompt for this month's Foodie for a Year was brunch I immediately knew I'd have to whip up something delicious, and in mini form.
Enter Glazed Blueberry Lemon Mini Muffins. These little morsels have just the right amount of lemon-y tart mixed with the juicy sweetness of blueberries. They're oh-so moist, and the glaze is literally the icing that pulls it all together, and eating one is simply impossible. They also pair well with every imaginable brunch food, and coffee. They go really, really well with coffee.

These could also be made with in a standard muffin size. Just up the bake time to about 20 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
I also need to be note that this baking adventure was the perfect way to keep Marcus entertained for a solid hour. He was more than happy to be my baking assistant.
Zesting.
Squeezing fresh lemon juice.
He would have zested and juiced a hundred lemons had we had that many. And, for a good week he asked me every single day to zest. I foresee lots of lemon goodies being baked in our house this summer...

Linking up with some lovely ladies for this months Foodie for a Year.

  10. Somehow Connor learned about juice and that you can make it. We don't usually have juice in the house but he has been begging to make "home juice" so we are going tomorrow to get some oranges and we are making some juice. I put money on him not drinking a single drop ;)
