Lemony blueberry muffins- easy cupcake recipe

       Blueberries is considered as a wonder fruit. Its not only because of the high level of antioxidant nutrients in it, but also because of several other health benefits. We never used to get this fruits so easily in India, But I do try to make the full  advantage of  such useful things and will continue to explore for newer things till I live here. But then  I would surely recommend having atleast the dried blueberries if fresh ones are not available.The dried ones are also higher in antioxidants and have several other health benefits.

         The lemon cake which I made along with my son few days back was a huge hit at home. And then their were repeated requests demands to make that one again. However I try to bake different cakes each time atleast with a minor changes in the same recipe or with a addition of one or two ingredients. I always get a punnet of blueberries whenever they are available at the supermarket. By now, I have come to know  my family love for tangy lemony cakes and  back of my mind I  knew for sure that cakes with lemons and blueberries definitely existed. I browsed for the recipe and found it here. The muffins looked very good , was moist and tasted great. The texture was nice and spongy too.
