Servings: 1 dozen (serving size: 1 muffin)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar

- 1 cup blueberries
- Cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through nutmeg) in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.
- Combine buttermilk, egg, and rind; stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moist. Gently fold in blueberries.
