Super Blackberry Muffin Recipe!

Looking for something to do on this dreary winter day?  These will melt in your mouth and disappear as quickly as you make them! Not easy on the waistline, but super delish!  The original recipe is from "THE BEST of THE BEST and more", the Best of Bridge Series, and uses blueberries with lemon instead.  I just substituted blackberries and skipped the lemon!

Super Blackberry Muffins

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 TBSP. baking powder
1/2 TSP. salt
rind of 1 lemon (optional)
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter melted
1 cup fresh or frozen berries (blackberry or blueberry)

Lemon Butter Topping

1/4 cup melted butter
2 TBSP. lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar

To Make Muffins

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon rind in large bowl.  Beat egg in medium bowl;  Add milk and butter.  Add egg mixture to dry ingredients.  Stir until just mixed (batter will be lumpy).  Stir in berries.  Fill muffin pans 2/3 full;  Bake at 375F (190C) for 20 minutes.  

To Make Topping

Combine melted butter and lemon juice.  Measure sugar in separate dish.  Dunk tops of slightly cooled muffins into lemon butter and then sugar.  Makes 16 medium muffins.
