1/4 cup butter, melted

1 large egg

1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk

1/2 cup 2% reduced-fat milk

Sift together 1 1/2 cups flour plus 1 tablespoon flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. Combine melted butter and egg in another large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add buttermilk, milk, and 1 teaspoon rind to butter mixture; stir with a whisk. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Toss blueberries with remaining 1 tablespoon flour. Fold blueberries into batter. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

To prepare frosting, place cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon rind, vanilla, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed just until blended.

3 Ingredient Lemon Cake | Our Lady of Second Helpings

3 Ingredient Lemon Cake
Ingredients:
1 box (18.25 oz.) Pillsbury Moist Supreme Lemon Cake Mix (box contents only)
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple in 100% pineapple juice
6 oz. (approximately 3/4 cup) Chobani non-fat Greek yogurt – lemon flavor

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, prepare a 13×9 baking pan with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl combine all three ingredients making sure to mix thoroughly eliminating any pockets of dry cake mix. The batter will be thick.

When fully combined, pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 – 40 minutes until a tooth pick or cake probe can be inserted and removed cleanly.

Cool completely before serving. Cake will be moist and slightly sticky, clean knife after each cut to prevent the cake from tearing.

Directions:

For the peanut butter bottoms

Step 1 Combine the peanut butter, maple syrup and liquid coconut oil (melt if needed) in a medium size bowl and stir until well combined.

Step 2 Combine the raw cacao, maple syrup and liquid coconut oil (melt if needed) in a medium size bowl and stir until well combined.

Drop a spoonful at a time on top of the frozen/hardened peanut butter in the silicone muffin cups.

Step 3 Keep in the freezer until served because they will melt and lose their shape at room temperature if the coconut oil begins to melt.
