Riley's Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins


Riley is actually a very good cook. He just doesn't cook all that often.
Whisk together:

* 2 cups flour
* 1 Tb baking powder
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* grated nutmeg
* 2 tsp Lemon zest or to taste…

Whisk in another bowl:

* 2 large eggs * 1 cup buttermilk * 2/3 cup sugar * 1/2 cup melted
butter (vegetable oil will work if you are desperate, but be prepared to be under- whelmed) * 1/4 tsp Vanilla…

Mix wet with dry ingredients quickly, don't over mix*. Then throw in some
blueberries, about 3/4 cup, and barely mix. Fill paper lined muffin tins (12 large or 24 medium) and bake at 400 degrees about 12-15 minutes, checking every few minutes after the first ten. When bamboo skewer comes out clean they are done!

*This is one of those recipes where you can tell if it was over-mixed, so be gentle.

Should keep about 15 minutes if you have eaters lurking about, or til next morning if you hide some.
