1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)

1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup sifted flour (use All-Purpose or an A-P/whole-wheat blend)

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup of sugar until the mixture is light in color and texture.
2. Beat in the milk, eggs and vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
4. Blend the dry mixture into the butter mixture, mixing until just moistened. Fold in the blueberries and zest (if using).
5. Line a muffin pan with papers (or grease the cups with butter) before filling each 2/3 full with the batter. Sprinkle the filled cups with the reserved tablespoon of sugar.
6. Bake at 375°F for 20 to 25 minutes (check for doneness with a toothpick, which should come out clean if they're cooked). Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before serving warm or at room temperature.
