DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400F (200C).
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, rolled oats, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, egg, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and finely chopped peeled lemon (white pith removed first).
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing only until blended.
  • Fill 12 well-greased muffin cups two thirds full.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the syrup: Put 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the grated rind and juice of 1/2 lemon in a small pot.
  • Bring to a boil and reserve.
  • When the muffins are baked, prick all over with a toothpick.
  • Do not remove them from the pan until cooled.
  • Brush the warm syrup on the hot muffins.
