Blackberry buttermilk muffins

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups blackberries, rinsed

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and zest. Gently stir in the berries.

In a second bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.

Using a spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are combined and flour 'disappears'.

Fill each muffin cup to 3/4 full. Back in preheated oven at 375° or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Once fully cooled, these freeze well.

I made these yesterday morning and they are delicious. I even baked them in our RV oven and that usually doesn't produce the best results. But they were lovely.
