Next in the muffin series is Lemon and Blueberry muffins. The recipe is from a very old book which has vegan recipes. It called for fresh berries, but since it’s difficult to get these I used dried ones. Unfortunately I did not have the amount required , so I used what I had. I understand that the fresh ones would have given a much better taste to the muffins, but all the same the combo of lemon and blueberry is one universal one and tastes real good.
I served these with some sugar glazing, as I had cut down the sugar ,realizing later that they need to be more sweet .
