     MUFFINS-1 - Award-winning blueberry muffins

     These muffins won a blue ribbon during the years that I was
     eligible for the Dade County (Miami, Forida) Youth Fair.  I
     think this particular recipe came originally from the Better
     Homes and Gardens Cookbook, but I could be wrong.

INGREDIENTS (Makes 12 muffins)
     1 3/4 cups
     6 Tbsp    sugar
     2 1/2 tsp baking powder
     3/4 tsp   salt
     1         egg beaten
     3/4 cup   milk
     1/3 cup   cooking oil
     3/4 cup   blueberries
     1 tsp     lemon peel (optional)

          (1)  Preheat oven to 400 deg. F.  Stir together the
               flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Make a
               well in the center.

          (2)  In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk, and

          (3)  Add egg mixture, all at once, to the flour mix-
               ture.  Stir just until moistened.  Yes, the batter
               should be lumpy.  (If you try to stir all the
               lumps out, your muffins will be very tough.)

          (4)  Carefully fold in blueberries and optional lemon

          (5)  Grease muffin cups, or line with paper bake cups;
               fill each 2/3 full.

          (6)  Bake at 400 deg. F for 20-25 minutes, or until
               golden brown.  Remove from pans; serve warm with

     The less you stir once you've combined the two mixtures, the
     better your muffins will be.  (To a point-but overmixing is
     much more common than undermixing.)  Frozen blueberries work
     fine, if you can't get hold of fresh berries.  I'm sure
     other kinds of fruit will work fine, too, but I haven't
     tried them.

     Difficulty: moderate (proper mixing technique required).
     Time: 10 minutes preparation, 25 minutes baking.  Precision:
     measure the ingredients.
