Preheat oven to 375F. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer until fluffy. *disclaimer...I used salted butter and omitted the salt from the recipe. Generally a no-no, but I a haphazard baker.
Add egg and beat well...
I zested the lemon right into the bowl and just "eyeballed" the amount. (Haphazard baker...remember 😉).
...then add and beat the yogurt and lemon zest. The original recipe called for plain yogurt. I used Lemon Dannon Greek (fat free).
...sift the remainder of the dry ingredients and mix. The mixture will be more like cookie dough than muffin batter.
Gently fold in berries. I used fresh, tiny UP Michigan berries.
Fill prepared muffin tins 3/4 full. I used a cookie scoop to fill the tins. It was a standard muffin tin...4 tbs batter each. It is just enough batter for 10 muffins.
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes, until lightly golden.
