Blueberry Muffins

Because sometimes when you’re easing back into a creative side of life, a little lemon scented sugar, blueberries, and a tried and true recipe is really all you need.

Blueberry Muffins
Makes 1 dozen

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup blueberries
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, well beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted shortening

1 tsp lemon zest
1/8 cup sugar

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In a separate dish combine zest and sugar, and rub together with fingers to mix. Set scented sugar aside.

In a separate bowl mix together sugar, egg, milk, shortening. Mix the wet and the dry ingredients until the mixture has just barely come together. Add blueberries. Top muffins with lemon scented sugar. Spoon into baking cups, bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Perfect with a pad of butter and a hot cup of coffee!
