Ingredients

  • 250 g cake flour or AP flour (2 cups)
  • tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 100 g granulated sugar (½ cup)
  • 100 g brown sugar (½ cup)
  • 60 mL vegetable oil e.g., canola oil (¼ cup)
  • 5 tbsp. lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • 180 g plain, low-fat Greek yogurt (¾ cup)
  • 60 mL milk semi-skimmed, whole, or plant-based (¼ cup)
  • 200 g blueberries fresh or frozen (approx. 1 cup)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 220°C (428F) and line a muffin tin with muffin liners (or lightly spray with oil).
  • Sift and mix flour, baking powder and salt in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
  • Place vegetable oil and sugar in a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or use a handheld mixer). Mix on medium speed until combined.
  • Add lemon juice and zest and mix to incorporate. Add Greek yogurt and mix for 1-2 minutes until well-combined.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients in two parts, alternating with milk and mix until just combined. Do not over mix.
  • Fold in blueberries using a spatula. Batter will be slightly thick.
  • Divide batter between muffin pan, filling all the way to the top for a large muffin or ¾ full for a smaller muffin (you should have 10-12 muffins).
  • Bake for 8 minutes at 220°C (428F). Without opening the oven, decrease the temperature to 175°C (350F) and bake for another 8-12 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Baking time depends on muffin size and oven.
  • Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes in muffin pan, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
