Riley's Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins

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

* 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…

* 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…

* 3/4 cup blueberries (give or take a few)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put paper liners in a muffin tin.  If you don't have the liners, butter the muffin tin.
You can make 12 large or 24 small  muffins.

Combine the dry ingredients.
Whisk together in a separate bowl the eggs, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla.
Mix wet with dry ingredients quickly using a fork, don't over mix. This is one of those recipes where you can tell if it was over-mixed, so be gentle.
Then add the blueberries and barely mix.

Put batter into the muffin tin and bake for about 12-15 minutes, checking every few minutes after the first ten. When a pick comes out clean they are done.
