Lenore's Blueberry Muffin Recipe

This week Blueberries were on sale so I had to buy them. I was thinking about muffins but I didn't have a really good recipe. I asked my sister, Lenore, if she had one. Why yes she did. She had just made 2 dozen muffins. She emailed the recipe and they're truly the best muffins I have had.

The Americana Blueberry Muffin

½ cup butter softened
1 cup sugar   
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla   
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt   
½ cup milk
1-2 cups blueberries
1-2 tsp. grated lemon rind
2 tbsp. melted butter
2 tbsp. sugar, I used turbinado sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well. Add the vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and add them alternately with the milk to the batter. Mash ½ cup blueberries and add to the mixture, stirring just until blended. Toss the remaining berries with the lemon rind and fold in lightly. Spoon into greased muffins tins or custard cups. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. While still warm, brush each muffin with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with sugar. Thoroughly cool in tins or muffins will crumble. Makes 12 large muffins.
