Lemon Drizzle Muffins

Had been busy the last few days and blogging took a back seat. Hopefully this month I will be posting regularly…

So here comes moist and fluffy lemon muffins from the kitchen..  The yogurt gives them a soft texture …The lemon flavor was just subtle… If you want to increase the tanginess you can adjust the lemon juice accordingly..  And the drizzle gives the muffins a really moist melt in your mouth feeling …

  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon bicarb of soda

  1. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients.
  3. In another bowl, beat the egg, yoghurt, butter and lemon juice. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Take care not to overmix.
  4. Fill muffin cases 2/3 full. Bake at 180 C  for 20-24 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
