Super Blueberry Lemon Muffins

These muffins are wonderful!! They're the right balance of sweet, soft and fluffy, and I love the sugar coating on top. They're a serious treat in the morning!

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Rind of 1 lemon
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Lemon Butter Topping
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon rind.

Beat egg; add milk and butter

Add egg mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until just mixed (batter will be lumpy). Stir in blueberries.

Fill muffin pans/liners 2/3 full.

Bake at 375F for 20 minutes.

Combine melted bitter and lemon juice. Measure sugar in separate dish. Dunk tops of slightly cooled muffins into lemon butter and then sugar.

Makes 16 medium muffins.
