Really refreshing muffins! Really refreshing muffins!
Number of Servings: 10


    2 cups flour
    2 tsps baking powder
    3/4 cup sugar

    75gms butter
    1 egg
    1 cup milk
    grated peel from orange or lemon rind

    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1/4 cup sugar


Sift flour, baking powder and sugar into a large bowl.

Heat and melt butter. Add egg, milk and peel. Mix together quickly with a fork.

Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients. Don't over mix. Only mix til mixture is dampened.

Spoon divided portions into muffin pans (I use silicon puffin pans, so no spraying or greasing needed).

Bake in preheated oven at 200 C for around 10-15 minutes - or until muffins spring back when touched.

Once out of the oven, spoon lemon juice and sugar syrup over each muffin. Leave for a few minutes, then place on baking rack to cool.


Number of Servings: 10
