Ingredients:
1.All purpose flour                   -         2 cups
2.Sugar                                     -          1/3 cup
3.Eggs                                       -          2
4.Salt                                         -          1/4 tsp
5.Baking pwdr                           -          2 tsp
6.Milk                                        -           3/4 cup
7.Blueberries                              -           2 cups
8.Lemon zest                              -           1 tsp
9.Vanilla essence                        -           1 tsp
10.Butter                                     -            4 tbsp (1/2 stick)

Method:
Pre heat oven at 350 degree farenhiet for 10 to 15 mins.Line muffin tray with liners.
* Wash the blueberries and pat dry them.Take a muslin cloth and add a little flour in it.Now dump the blueberries and roll them with the flour.This step is very essential.This will make the blueberries to spread throughout the batter.If not the berries will go directly down to the batter and the cupcake will not rise properly.

* Take a mixing bowl,add sieved flour,baking powder,salt .Mix them well.In another bowl,add butter and sugar.Cream them well with a hand mixer.Now add eggs one by one.Whisk it with vanilla essence.
* Now slowly,add the milk and flour mixture alternatively.Start with flour and end with flour.At last add the blueberries and lemon zest.Mix them well with the whisk.Fill the muffin tray with the prepared mixture.Let the muffin liners be 3/4 full.



* Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or untill toothpick comes out clean.I have baked them in 2 batches.Cool the muffins on a wire rack.When cooled completely brush them with some butter for a shiny glaze.When we break the muffins,we can see the blueberries melting from heat.Its divine to have blueberries in muffins.
