Giant Blueberry Raspberry Lemon Muffins



*Insert retarded seal clap*

These are really, really yummy.  There isn't that much else to say about them.  The berries are tart and nicely complimented by the lemon, then the muffin is topped with lemon zest and demerara sugar for a cruncy caramelized top.  It just doesn't get any better.

I highly recommend anyone with sugar sensitivities or diabetes not eat these.  I ate half of one and passed out with my face smashed against the kitchen counter.  Seriously.  Totally worth it though.
