This blueberry muffins recipe is so simple and the key to success is not to over-mix after beating the eggs and sugar. You want to see tiny lumps in the batter after mixing in the flour and it should not be perfectly smooth. I used an electric hand mixer to beat the eggs and sugar then added the flour, zest and lemon juice with a whisk and finally folded in the blueberries with a spatula.
