Luscious Lemon Muffins

Recipe by Teenagecook
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 18 muffins




  • Cream butter and sugar till really fluffy. Add egg yolks, mix well.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and add altenately with the lemon juice to the creamed mixture.
  • Beat egg white until REALLY stiff, fold into batter with lemon zest.
  • Fill paper lined muffin cups three-quarters full. Bake at 350 degrees till lightly golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean.
  • While the muffins are still warm prick them all over with the wooden pick.
  • Spoon over the lemon glaze, the glaze will be absorbed almost immediately so don't over coat them or they will be soggy.
  • When the muffins have cooled the glaze will form a light crust which also helps keep the muffins moister for longer.
