What's Cooking Wednesday - Blueberry Yogurt Muffins


BLUEBERRY YOGURT MUFFINS

Today is my turn to bring treats to my Park Mom's Group. So, I opened "Cooking Light's Five Star Recipes: The Best of 10 Years" cookbook that Grandma Grandma (J's grandmother) gave me. This is my favorite cookbook because Grandma used it and it has dog-eared pages. I found this muffin recipe she made. 
I love you Grandma!!


WHATCHA NEED
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup unsweetened orange juice
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8 oz) carton vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
Vegetable cooking spray
1 tablespoon sugar

WHATCHA DO
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl
Make a well in center of mixture
Combine egg and next 4 ingredients
Add to dry ingredients
Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened
Gently fold in blueberries

Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar evenly over batter
Bake for 18 minutes or until golden
Remove from pans immediately
Cool on a wire rack.

WHATCHA DO DIFFERENT
I had 2-8 oz yogurt cups so I just put it all in
I didn't spray the muffin cups enough
Shoulda drained the blueberry juice (muffins were blue)

WHATCHA THINK
Yummy!!!!
Just like everything Grandma makes!!

WHAT IS "WHAT'S COOKING WEDNESDAY"

This looks like a fabulous recipe! I learned a trick this summer - DON'T thaw the blueberries, but bake with them frozen and then they bake in without turning your recipe blue. Cool, huh?
