Raspberry Lemon Cornmeal Muffins

Eric and I just got back from Orlando, which was blazin’ hot. We thought we’d get a little reprieve once we landed in Ohio, only to be welcomed by 95 degree temperatures. Not cool, Ohio – not cool at all. So of course, what better plan is there than to crank up my oven and bake a delicious summer play on Cornmeal Muffins?

When the weather heats up, I find myself craving lemonade. I’m fairly certain there isn’t anything more refreshing than a tall, ice cold glass of homemade lemonade – more specifically Raspberry Lemonade. I’m also a lover of fresh berries in my lemonade, I think they combine perfectly to a create sweet and tart flavor that truly hits the spot.

These Raspberry Lemon Cornmeal Muffins were inspired by my love of that lemonade and my need for a quick and tasty breakfast that I can grab while I run out the door on the way to these last few weeks of school – Summer break here we come.

Sweet, fresh raspberries and tangy lemon all rolled up into one deliciously moist cornmeal muffin. And by using Truvia Baking Blend, I am able to cut back on the calories while still enjoying my morning breakfast muffin.

These muffins are perfect for eating on a warm spring morning, alongside your cup of coffee, or hey, even a nice tall glass of lemonade. Lemonade is totally the new breakfast trend!

      It’s actually cooled down a bit in Ohio – only 75 today which means I can crank the oven back up today! Thanks for stopping by.

    Agree on the lemonade, so refreshing. And, these muffins, I think I’ll be baking them this weekend. We have had a very long spring here in New England, we’ve only been in the eighties twice. Holiday forecast is calling for rainy and cool, good baking weather. Won’t the muffins be a nice treat to bring to a cookout!

      We’ve had a little reprieve too – it’s only supposed to be in the high 60s this weekend, which is fine by me. Have a great holiday weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.

    I made these last night and they are fabulous! I used regular sugar and blackberries and will definitely make them again.

    • Jamie — May 26th, 2013 at 11:54 am

      Ooooh I bet the blackberries were amazing! Thanks so much for stopping by and reporting back.
