DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°; grease muffin cups or use foil or paper baking cups.
  • Finely chop the ginger; finely grate the lemon peel so you have 2 tablespoons.
  • In a big bowl, beat butter and 1 cup sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time; add ginger and lemon peel.
  • Stir baking soda into yogurt or buttermilk; it will start to bubble and rise up.
  • Fold flour into ginger mixture one third at a time, alternately with the yogurt.
  • When well blended, scoop into muffin cups; bake 18-20 minutes, or until lightly browned and springy to the touch.
  • While the muffins bake, mix lemon juice and the 2 tablespoons sugar in a small dish; stir until sugar dissolves.
  • When muffins are baked, remove from oven and let cool 3-5 minutes in pan.
  • Remove from pan and dip top and bottom in the lemon juice and sugar mixture.
