Blueberry & Lemon Muffins

                                                                         

The simple things are some of life's best pleasures. Blueberry Muffins are just that, simple but delicious. These are made with plain yogurt. If you are not baking with yogurt you need to give it a try. Yogurt just adds UMPH to baking. Give these muffins a try, I think you will agree!

2 Cups Blueberries
1 & 1/2 Cups Sugar
2 & 1/2 Cups Flour
3 TSP Baking Powder
1 TSP Salt
1/2 TSP Nutmeg
2 Eggs Beaten well
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
2 TSP Fresh Lemon Juice or 1 TSP Lemon Extract

Stir all the dry ingredients together. Add all the wet ingredients stir until all of the batter is wet. Batter will be very thick ! Stir in washed blueberries folding in gently. Spoon into a sprayed with baking spray 12 well muffin tin. Sprinkle tops with white sanding sugar or granulated sugar. Bake at 400 degrees about 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pan about 6 minutes then dump out. Serve warm or cold DELICIOUS!
FOR VARIATION:
Use Vanilla instead of the lemon using 2 tsp of vanilla & then use cinnamon instead of the nutmeg. Sprinkle sugar & cinnamon on the tops before baking!
Use the lemon, the blueberries AND 2/3 cups of coconut for all you coconut lovers!
