“This muffin recipe is a little unusual. The main liquid is yogurt, which gives a nice flavor, a light texture and a nice round shape. The muffins have an incredibly delicate, almost angel food-like crumb. Mix in any fruit you like; this recipe includes blueberries, but they can be subbed for anything you like. The recipe comes from The Best Recipe Cookbook.”
12 muffins
