  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated, lightly packed lemon zest (from 3 medium lemons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, slightly softened

  8. Mix in half the flour and mix well.

  11. Equally, divide the batter into the prepared muffin tin.
  12. Bake for 17 to 19 minutes. Bake until a toothpick can be inserted and comes out dry.
  13. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  14. Frost with the lemon frosting.
