Recipe by AmyFromSD
READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (or 325 for convection bake). Butter and flour standard muffin tin. In a medium bowl, whisk the four with the baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt (or buttermilk) vanilla, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, cream the butter and granulated sugar until light. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. With the mixer on low speed, add the four mixture in three batches, alternating with two additions of the yogurt mixture.
  • Divide evenly amongst the muffin cups (perfectly portioned when using a standard level ice cream scoop). Bake until the toothpick inserted in teh center of a cake comes clean, 15 - 20 minutes (closer to 15 with convection bake). Cool for 10 minutes in tin, then cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Set the rack over wax or parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir confectioners' sugar with teh remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice until smooth (add more lemon juice if needed). Pour over the cakes, spreading to the edges with a small knife. Let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
