These pretty muffins are full of zesty lemon and fresh blueberries and make the perfect treat to bring to friends’ houses or serve up to guests at home. Don’t forget to take the cream cheese out of the fridge when you start making your muffin batter. This way it’ll be nice and soft when it comes time to make the icing. Serve with a cuppa and enjoy!
