  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl, then mix in the sugar, lemon zest, and a pinch of salt. Make a well in the center.
  2. Mix the yogurt, eggs, and butter in a bowl, then pour into the dry ingredients, along with the blueberries. Fold together lightly, just until combined; don't overmix or the muffins will be heavy. Don't worry if a few lumps remain in the batter.
  3. Spoon evenly into the muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes or until risen and golden. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then serve warm or let cool to room temperature.
  • Use raspberries instead of blueberries, or orange zest instead of lemon.
  • These muffins are best eaten the same day they're made, preferably when still warm from the oven.
