Blueberry Lemon Treats with Chocolate Chips

I love almost anything and everything to do with blueberries. Muffins with blueberries in them are such a delight, and these are exactly that and even better! Big juicy blueberries baked in the goodness of lemon curd and topped with chocolate chips! I know you’re thinking if it sounds so good, how wonderful would it be to bite into them. These treats make a great afternoon tea addition or the perfect end to a summer party.

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Baking Time: 20 mins
Makes: 12 muffins

  • 1/8 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup lemon curd (see notes)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup plain flour + 2 tsp plain flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • Chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven and line a muffin tin with 12 muffin cases.
  2. Add the egg, yogurt, melted butter and lemon peel into a bowl and whisk until blended.
  3. To the blended mix, now add flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda and combine well.
  4. Throw the blueberries into a bowl and add 2 teaspoons of plain flour to them. Mix gently to coat the berries with the flour.
  5. Now gently tip the blueberries into the batter and stir again so that they are even distributed.
  6. Use a spoon to scoop the batter into the muffin cases. Do not fill the muffin cases to the brim as the batter needs space to rise.
  7. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on the top of each muffin batter.
  8. Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees.
  9. Take out of the oven once the tops are golden brown and leave to cool.
  10. Now go indulge yourself!
