I was not a blueberry muffin lover until I tried these. With eggs these muffins have made me leave the toast behind! Moist and flaky they are best when they are warm!

Another winner Bev! I did a double batch, but only used 1/2 the lemon peel (I ran out) It provided PLENTY of fresh, lemon flavor. These muffins are moist with a thick batter that does a terrific job keeping the berries evenly distributed in the muffin. The recipe didn't specify what type of oil so, since I can never do anything simple, I used a combination of melted butter and walnut oil -- nut oils give baked goods a nice, mellow, flavor AND most of them are actually good for ya :-)
