I added a fresh orange glaze that I know you will enjoy!

Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a separate bowl until light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg and and the orange zest until well blended.
Stir in half of the flour by hand, add the orange juice and then the rest of the flour.
Gently fold by hand until just combined - do not over mix.
Carefully fold in the blueberries - the batter will be thick.
Spoon the batter into prepared muffin tins.
Bake @ 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until a pick inserted comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and glaze.

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
