1 ¼ cups granulated sugar (250 g), plus more for sprinkling
1 ½ teaspoons Mccormick® lemon extract
2 large eggs, room temperature
½ cup buttermilk (120 mL), room temperature
6 oz fresh blueberry (170 g)
muffin tin, 6 cup, jumbo
muffin tin liner
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a 6-cup jumbo muffin tin with liners.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer on medium speed until very fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the lemon extract and continue beating for another minute. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating on medium speed for 30 seconds after each addition. Add the buttermilk and carefully beat to combine. The mixture will look a little grainy, but will come together once the dry ingredients are added.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and beat on medium-low speed to incorporate. Do not overmix.
Add the blueberries and carefully fold into the batter using a rubber spatula.
Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups, filling halfway, and sprinkle with more sugar.
Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes, rotating halfway, or until light golden brown. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
