National Blueberry Muffin Day

Just retweeted that today is National Blueberry Muffin Day (http://twitter.com/Foodimentary). JOY! I’ve got a load of blueberries and a good recipe. Here it is:

Blueberry Muffins

4 tablespoons butter

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon grated fresh orange peel

1 cup buttermilk or stirred plain yogurt

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup blueberries

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease 8-10 muffin tins. Melt the butter and set aside to cool. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and orange peel in a bowl. Stir to combine ingredients thoroughly. In a second bowl mix the buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract and melted butter. Pour into the flour mixture and mix just to combine ingredients (it will be very thick). Fold in the blueberries. Spoon into the muffin tins, about 2/3 the way up. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until browned and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Makes 8-10
