Blueberry Muffins

We had a baby play group at our house with over 30 people.  This is a brunch/ light lunch so for breakfast I made muffins since I wasn't sure what else to make to feed that many people and not spending days in the kitchen.  This recipe turned out great!!

1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine, at room temp
1 cup granulated sugar 
2 large eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
2 teaspoons baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
2 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 cup milk 
2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries or 2 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
For Topping
1 tablespoon granulated sugar, mixed with 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 

1.Heat oven to 375°.
2. Grease 18 regular-size muffin cups (or 12 large size muffins).
3. In bowl, mix butter until creamy. Add sugar and beat until pale and fluffy. 
 4. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. 
5. Beat in vanilla, baking powder and salt. 
6. With spoon, fold in half of flour then half of milk into batter; repeat. 
7. Fold in blueberries. 
8. Spoon into muffin cups and sprinkle topping onto each muffin.
9. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown and springy to touch.
