Perfect for dessert or breakfast on-the-go, this simple muffin-cupcake hybrid gets most of its sweetness from the naturally-occurring sugars in the peach. You can substitute nectarines if you like. Reinvent day-old cupcakes as an elegant dessert. Cut them into large cubes or chunks and lightly toast them in a 350-degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and add a few toasted cupcake pieces to the bottom of a 6-ounce glass. Spoon nonfat vanilla yogurt over the top. Arrange more cubes on top of the yogurt and drizzle with one more layer of yogurt over the cake. Garnish with a few fresh blueberries to serve.
