Lemon Muffins

What a beautiful weekend! Sun and warm enough weather that I got to wear sandals!! Yeah!!

To celebrate the sun, why not bake some lemon muffins?!! :)

I love anything with lemon - and I always add much more than the recipes call for!

Lemon Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar (used a little less)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest (used lemon zest of 2 lemons)
Added some lemon juice from one lemon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk (used low fat)
1/3 cup vegetable oil (used Canola)
1 egg
Heat oven to 400 degrees F (350F in my oven). Grease bottoms only of 12 muffin cups or line with baking cups.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and salt; mix well. In a small bowl, combine milk, oil and egg (added the lemon juice here); blend well. Add dry ingredients all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened (batter will be lumpy.)               

Fill cups 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 1 minute before removing from pan. Serve warm.



Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there reading this! Bonne fête des mères!!

Those do look and sound sunny. Guess what we had today for Mother's Day - yep, your Nutella Brownies. Big hit. Thanks!

I love that first day of spring when I get to wear sandals and shed the socks! What a fantastic feeling! And these muffins sound perfect. Lemon is such a great summer flavor . . . and those little smiley faces are so cute!
