  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease muffin pan with butter or line with muffins liners. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt). Add 3/4 of a cup of blueberries and stir in. Coating them with dry ingredients prevents sinking to the bottom.
  4. In a large measuring cup or medium mixing bowl, whisk the wet ingredients (buttermilk, vanilla, oil and egg).
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir in with a fork until combined. Batter should be lumpy but no large clumps of flour should remain.
  6. Using a regular ice cream scoop, place two scoops of the batter into each muffin cup. Top with remaining berries.
  7. Bake in 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Without opening the oven, lower the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees F and set the timer for 20 minutes. Check the muffins with a toothpick (it should be clean) and add extra 2 to 3 minutes if needed. The tops should be domed, slightly cracked and golden brown.
  8. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove from pan and set on a cooling rack to cool completely.
  9. In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar with lemon juice until drizzling consistency. Add more juice if needed. Drizzle over muffins.
