2.  In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

3.  In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with a whisk or electric mixer on medium speed until light and frothy. Beat in the yogurt, oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir gently to combine.

4.  Divide the mixture among 12 medium muffin cups and bake until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

5.  Directions for Glaze:

6.  In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and sugar until smooth. While the hot cakes are still in the pan, poke each cake several times with a toothpick and brush the tops with glaze. Let the glaze soak in and repeat. Unmold the cakes and cool on a wire rack.

7.  Directions for Blueberry Compote:

8.  Place the blueberries, 1/3 cup of the water, and the maple syrup, cinnamon, and almond extract in a medium saucepan.

9.  Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, or until the blueberries have softened and begun to break down, about 20 minutes. Dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining 1 tablespoon water. Stir into the blueberry mixture and heat until thickened, about 1 minute. Serve the blueberry compote with the lemon cakes.
