Lemon-Blueberry Muffins

I tasted this recipe months ago when I was visiting my aunt and uncle in San Diego with my mom.  The hint of lemon mingling with juicy blueberries was amazing and I just knew I had to have this recipe and make these muffins again and again (and again)!  Little did I know, I already had the recipe, as it resides in a cookbook I received as a wedding gift more than four years ago!

2 cups cake flour (of 1 3/4 cups flour, sifted twice)
1/3 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons lemon zest (1-2 lemons)
1 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 400.  Combine first six ingredients, blending well.  Stir in lemon zest.  Fold in blueberries.

Fill greased or lined muffin tins 3/4 full.  Bake 15-20 minutes, or until golden on the edges.

Makes 12 good sized muffins.

Recipe adapted from Tidewater on the Half Shell by The Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach.  And also featured here!
