alton brown muffins

I'm new in this forum, and new in baking too. Just started to baked last month. Hope to learn something by trial and error.

I tried making Alton Brown blueberry muffins.
The recipe calls for
* 12 1/2 ounces cake flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* Heavy pinch salt
* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
* 1 egg
* 1 cup yogurt
* 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
* Vegetable spray, for the muffin tins

It turn out that the muffins is flat and the top is burnt, but the the filling is very moist and soft.
What went wrong with the recipe?

I had tried other muffins recipe, it didnt call for baking soda and it uses milk instead of yorgurt.
What the use for baking soda, i only know that it is used as levening agent. But doesnt baking powder do the same job as well?
What is the difference between using milk and yorgurt?
Also any difference when replace oil with melted butter?
