I gave an old recipe a new twist. I added yogurt and lemon zest to the batter. I topped them off with a lemony crumb topping. Adding the yogurt added a nice smooth silky texture to these muffins. The muffins are chock-full of blueberries. The addition of lemon really adds a lot to this muffin. They are truly delicious. Enjoy!
