BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

 I found an amazing blueberry muffin recipe online from allrecipes which needed only a few minor adjustments.  I added lemon peel and vanilla and replaced milk with buttermilk .  I also made 9 muffins with this batch.

 

This recipe also works great for cake.  I make it in a 9 inch square cake pan.
