Meyer Lemons

I’m smitten with Meyer lemons. They’re a cross between a mandarin and a traditional lemon. They still have that citrus flavor that I love without the pucker taste of traditional lemons. When they’re in season I grab them every time I can. I’m currently working on a batch of Meyer lemon limoncello. I’ll let you know how that turns out ; )

Until then I’m enjoying making anything and everything Meyer lemon. Including these muffins! They’re great for a quick grab and go breakfast (can even be made the night before) and pack a nice lemon-y punch.



  • 1 box (15.2 oz) Cinnamon Streusel premium muffin & quick bread mix
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Grated peel and juice of 1 Meyer lemon
  • Meyer lemon peel strips, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups.
  2. In medium bowl, stir muffin mix, milk, oil, eggs, grated lemon peel and lemon juice until blended.
  3. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Sprinkle streusel from packet over batter.
  4. Bake 16 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Garnish with lemon peel strips. Serve warm.
