  1. These muffins were great! I subbed a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and used 12 oz (2 yoplait) containers of lemon burst yogurt. I also squeezed a half a lemon into the batter because it did look dry and I wanted good lemon flavor. The lemon flavor was a little too mild for me...maybe I'll add the juice of a whole lemon next time. Otherwise, the muffins had the perfect texture and not overly moist from all the blueberry juices. I will be making these again!
  2. These are really wonderful. I served these with our fresh berries and they are heavenly. I made them for a family get together and they were gone in minutes.
  3. OMG these were soooo moist and delicious. I cut the butter in half and used applesauce for the other half to cut down on fat. I also used lowfat lemon yogurt. I brought these to work and everyone thinks they are YUMMO!!!
  4. Nice muffins but would have liked to have had more of a lemon flavor. I used frozen blueberries that I thawed in the microwave but forgot to rinse before adding them to the batter. My cupcakes had a blue tinge to them and next time will rinse and blot them dry before using. Thank you ev for posting this recipe!
  5. Ease of preparation and tasty!! Didn't have any lemon yogurt so used vanilla yogurt and added some lemon juice to it. Used some frozen blueberries I had. Also used a little less sugar. Thanks evelyn these are tasty muffins!! :)

I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
