Ingredients

Crunchy Topping:
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • sliced almond (optional)
Muffins:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh blueberry

Method

Muffins: In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together yogurt, orange zest, orange juice, oil and eggs; pour over flour mixture. Sprinkle with blueberries; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon into 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups.

Crunchy Topping: Stir together sugar, orange zest, and almonds (if using); sprinkle over batter. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until tops are firm to the touch, about 25 minutes.

Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer muffins to rack; let cool.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: You can use thawed frozen blueberries in place of the fresh blueberries if you like. However, they are juicier and will create purple streaks when you stir them into the abtter. The muffins will taste just as good, though!
