Blueberry Lemon Dutch Oven Muffins

The classic combination of blueberries with a hint of lemon is one of my summertime favorites. I use it in refreshing drinks, syrups and baked goods. These Blueberry Lemon Dutch Oven Muffins make a yummy breakfast or dessert. A word of warning, the glaze is a little sticky and just might make Emily Post roll over in her grave as you lick this sweet and tangy goodness from your fingers! Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

How To Make These Easy Blueberry Lemon Dutch Oven Muffins

Preheat Dutch Oven

Preheat a 10 Inch Cast Iron Dutch Oven to 400 degrees (see our Dutch Oven Temperature Chart for the number of briquettes required.)

Mix the dry ingredients in a larger bowl:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Zest of ½ lemon

Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl:

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 lemon, juice of a fresh lemon
  • 1 egg, beaten

Now, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients gently mixing until blended.

Now add these:

  • ¼ cup club soda
  • 1 (6oz.) package fresh blueberries, washed

Spoon the batter into 12 Foil Cupcake Liners. Place filled cupcake liners into a pre-heated 10-inch Dutch oven being careful not to burn yourself on the hot oven.

  • 12 foil cupcake liners

Camp Cooking Tip: Foil Cupcake Liners hold their shape better than paper ones when cooking individual muffins in a Dutch oven. It is the Dutch oven itself that holds the liners in place but they will still form odd shapes as they bake.

Camp Cooking Tip: If you want your muffins to be uniform in shape, you need to use a Cast Iron Muffin Pan instead of cupcake liners. Verify the size of Dutch oven required to fit the muffin pan. For example, a muffin pan measuring 12 ¾ inches wide will require a 14-inch Dutch oven (NOT a 12-inch Dutch oven.)

Make the glaze

While the muffins are baking, make the glaze in a small bowl by mixing these ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • Zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Camp Cooking Tip: If muffins are done but not browned, move some of the charcoal briquettes from the bottom of the oven to the top of the oven and continue baking until the muffins are golden.

Glaze Them

Let these Blueberry Lemon Dutch Oven Muffins cool slightly and then use a spoon to drizzle the glaze over them.
