       Title: Blueberry Muffins
  Categories: Breads, Usenet
       Yield: 12 Muffins
  
   1 3/4 c  Flour
       6 T  Sugar
   2 1/2 t  Baking powder
     3/4 t  Salt
       1    Egg, beaten
     3/4 c  Milk
     1/3 c  Cooking oil
     3/4 c  Blueberries
       1 t  Lemon peel
  
   Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Stir together the flour, sugar, baking
   powder and salt. Make a well in the center.
   
   In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk and oil.  Add egg mixture,
   all at once, to the flour mixture.  Stir JUST until moistened.  Yes,
   the batter should be lumpy.  (If you try to stir all the lumps out,
   your muffins will be very tough.) CAREFULLY fold in blueberries and
   optional lemon peel.
   
   Grease muffin cups, or line with paper bake cups; fill each 2/3 full.
   Bake at 400 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
   Remove from pans; serve warm with butter.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Award-winning blueberry muffins -- these muffins won a blue ribbon
   during the years that I was eligible for the Dade County (Miami,
   Florida) Youth Fair. I think this particular recipe came originally
   from the “Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook,” but I could be wrong.
   
   *  The less you stir once you've combined the two mixtures, the
   better your muffins will be.  (To a point, but over-mixing is much
   more common than under- mixing.) Frozen blueberries work fine, if you
   can't get hold of fresh berries. I'm sure other kinds of fruit will
   work fine, too, but I haven't tried them.
   
   : Difficulty:  moderate (proper mixing technique required).
   : Time:  10 minutes preparation, 25 minutes baking.
   : Precision:  measure the ingredients.
