    Makes: 10


    300g plain flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp poppy seeds
    ¼ tsp salt
    75g caster sugar, plus ½ tbsp extra for scattering
    150g Greek style natural yogurt

    1 Large Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Egg
    1 lemon, zest and juice
    ½ tsp vanilla extract
    75g vegetable spread or butter, melted and cooled
    150g blueberries


    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6; line 10 holes of a 12-hole muffin tin with cases (leave 2 of the middle ones empty). Put the fl our, baking powder, poppy seeds, salt and 75g sugar in a bowl and stir together.

    Cook’s tip

    If you don’t have muffin cases, cut squares of parchment about 12cm x 12cm and fold into the holes of the muffin tin.
