2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease cups of muffin tin or line with baking cups.
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter using 2 knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and add eggs, milk, vanilla & almond extracts, stirring just until the liquid is absorbed. Gently fold in orange rind, if using, and berries, then fill the muffin cups with the mixture.
Blend sugar, flour, cinnamon & butter together and sprinkle evenly over the top of muffin mix.
