1030 Muffins

Trust me - they taste better than they look! (I think I need fresh baking powder).
My first clue should have been the recipe name: "Big Beautiful Muffins"
I used a cupcake tin. I should have used a muffin tin.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups lowfat plain yogurt
2 large eggs
8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled (oops...forgot to cool it!)

1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 375 degrees. Generously coat a 12-cup muffin tin with vegetable oil spray.
2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk the yogurt and eggs together in a medium bowl. Gently fold the yogurt-egg mixture into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined. Fold in the melted butter.
3. Use a large ice-cream scoop or measuring cup to divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out with just a few crumbs attached, 25-30 minutes. (These took about 20 minutes, since they were smaller.)
4. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then flip out onto a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Variation: Lemon-Blueberry Muffins
Add 1 tsp grated lemon zest to the yogurt-egg mixture and fold 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries that have been tossed in 1 tbsp flour into the finished batter. If using frozen blueberries, rinse them in a strainer until the water runs clear, then drain on paper towels and pat dry before stirring (unfloured) into the batter.

They look like they will taste great. Thanks for the recipe. I think I am going to try lemon with poppy seed.--Rene
