Easy Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins
Recipe by Inn On Lake Wissota, Chippewa Falls:
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp Lemon Extract
2 cups all-purpose flour, or whole wheat flour, or gluten-free flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 TBS baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup fresh blueberries or ¾ cup frozen blueberries thawed and rinsed
3 TBS Coarse Sugar
Preheat the oven to 400°. Fill a medium 12-cup muffin tin with paper muffin liners. Beat the egg, stir in milk, vegetable oil, lemon zest and lemon extract. The lemon zest and lemon extract are something I added to a basic Blueberry muffin recipe I found years ago. I felt that recipe was lacking something so I tried adding the lemon zest and extract to add an extra depth of flavor and have been pleased with this recipe ever since. Stir in flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until combined. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. Sprinkle coarse sugar on top of muffins. Bake 18-22 minutes, until golden brown or a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
