DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease (or line with muffin papers) a 12-cup muffin pan and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the buttermilk, oil, lemon juice, lemon extract, sugar and eggs until just combined (do not over beat). Using a wooden spoon, fold in the flour mixture in a few swift strokes to form a smooth batter.
  • Divide the batter into the 12 muffin tins.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are lightly golden around the edges and a wooden pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  • While the muffins are baking, prepare the lemon glaze by stirring the sugar into the lemon juice until all the sugar crystals are completely dissolved; stir in the lemon zest.
  • Remove the muffins from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove them from the muffin pan and brush them generously with the lemon glaze. Allow them to sit at room temperature to cool completely and soak the lemon glaze.
  • Makes 12 muffins.
