Yield: Yields 12 muffins.
This muffin batter is also delicious with the flavoring variations that follow the recipe. Be sure to add the fruit before the batter is fully mixed to avoid overmixing.
Cranberry-Orange Muffins: In place of the lemon zest and blueberries in the batter, add orange zest and chopped fresh cranberries.
Banana-Walnut Muffins: Don’t add any zest to the batter. Instead add 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced ripe banana and 3/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted walnuts.
Overfilling the muffin cups gives you those great big bakery-style muffin tops.

Absolutely delicious muffins!! But the batter makes way more than a dozen! More like sixteen to eighteen, which is not a negative but I had to scramble to find another pan to accomodate the extra batter!
Definitely going to add this to the muffin repertoire. My husband likes what he calls "cake like" blueberry muffins. These are the best cake like blueberry muffins I have made. I also like finecookings good for you blueberry muffins. Thank you fine cooking for giving me two very good blueberry muffin recipes!
