Recipe #50: Glazed Lemon Muffins  


Originally I was planning to make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, but I had a lemon around for a recipe that I didn't end up making and wanted to use it up before it went bad. I had this lemon recipe saved on pinterest and figured I'd try it.

I didn't have a lemon zester, however, so I ended up having to use a vegetable peeler to get the lemon zest, then chop up the pieces using a knife. A bit more time consuming than the zester would have been but it worked out fine.

Other than that, this recipe was pretty easy to put together. I picked it because I don't currently have things like a beater. I used 1 cup of all-purpose flour since I didn't have whole wheat to do half-and-half. The batter seemed really thin compared to most of the muffin batter I use so I was a bit worried that it wasn't thicker, but it ended up being fine. The glaze was also super easy to put together.

These actually made me 12 muffins, but they were a bit on the smaller side since I thought they would rise more than they actually did. They were great! A lot lighter than most muffins, almost tasted like a lemon pancake. The first reaction is LEMON SURPRISE LEMON before it like, the bread part comes in and you can taste it. Would make again!
