Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar till really fluffy. Add egg yolks, mix well.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and add altenately with the lemon juice to the creamed mixture.
  3. Beat egg white until REALLY stiff, fold into batter with lemon zest.
  4. 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.
  5. While the muffins are still warm prick them all over with the wooden pick.
  6. Spoon over the lemon glaze, the glaze will be absorbed almost immediately so don't over coat them or they will be soggy.
  7. When the muffins have cooled the glaze will form a light crust which also helps keep the muffins moister for longer.
