1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2/3 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

¾ cup plain yogurt

1 ½ cup flour

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

¾ cup blueberries

1 tsp flour

  3. Add in yogurt and keep blending until well incorporated

  5. Add dry ingredients to wet batter. Start mixing using a spatula, then finish with a hand/stand mixer until just coming together. You do not want to over mix
