    Sherrie-pie's Note:

    This recipe comes from the Daily Mail's Leith's Recipe of the Day. I made some yesterday for our Brownie Pack's Tsunami fundraising event and they, along with my brownies (I used Recipe no 13729 - not my recipe! But a good one!) were sold out. Try them for something different. I did need more than the amount below of lemon juice for the glaze. The recipe says "10 minutes" prep time. I think they're talking about professionals. I'm "just" a housewife - it took me a while longer. But worth it.

      These were lovely muffins, even without the glaze (I was too lazy to glaze them, I have to admit). I was able to get 12 mini muffins and 4 regular-sized muffins from this. I'm sure they'll be well received at work tomorrow. For Americans using this recipe...I used 3/4 c flour, 5 tb. granulated sugar, a little more than 1/2 c milk, 4 tb. butter, and 1.5 tb. powdered sugar (I think the glaze would call for 1/4 cup powdered sugar). Thanks for the recipe!

      I reviewed this recipe ages ago and have made them dozens of times since. Everyone who has tried them has loved them and they never last long. My main advice is don't over-stir! They lose their dreamy fluffiness and turn chest. Better to leave the batter a little lumpy. You won't hardly notice it.

      I made my own lemon curd the same day and then used this recipe. Also added a small spoonful of lemon butter on top of the cream cheese mix in the middle. They turned out beautifully. One for the recipe box!
