Amish Cook launches summer recipe series

These are some requested recipes from readers as part of our "summer recipe series." The Amish Cook will return in its regular format later in the month. Enjoy!

An Amish Cook reader in Highland, Indiana requested a recipe for blueberry muffins with a splash of lemon. Try this recipe which comes from an Amish settlement in Maine where blueberries are plentiful during the summer!

BUTTERMILK BLUEBERRY LEMON MUFFINS

Makes 24 muffins

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup softened butter

1 1/ 2 cups sugar

4 eggs

2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup buttermilk

2 cups blueberries

GLAZE

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon lemon zest

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly greased muffin tins or line tins with cupcake papers. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until thoroughly blended. Beat in the eggs, one egg at a time. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla until smooth in consistency. Beat in flour mixture and buttermilk, alternating dry ingredients with buttermilk, adding about a third each time. The mixture should be smooth and creamy. Fold in the blueberries and mix until the blueberries are evenly distributed throughout the batter. Pour the batter into the muffin tins, filling the tins about half full. Bake until the muffin tops are golden, 20 - 25 minutes. Allow to cool about 5 minutes. In a small mixing bowl, combine the sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest until a smooth consistency is achieved. Apply to the muffin tops while still warm.

A reader in Kalkaska, Michigan requested a recipe for ham loaf. This is a great Amish recipe from Iowa.
