Blueberry Muffins

Pair a hit of fresh orange flavor -- courtesy of grated zest -- with a crunchy, sugary top crust for a phenomenal morning pick-me-up.

Makes: 10 muffins

Prep: 10 minutes

Bake: at 375 degrees for 25 minutes

A. To finely grate orange zest, we recommend a Microplane zester. This utensil -- originally designed to mimic a woodworking tool -- does the best job separating flavorful rind from bitter pith.

B. Gently fold berries into batter, taking care not to crush the fragile fruit.

C. Pour a scant 1/3 cup batter into each prepared muffin cup, dividing equally.
