Pieday Friday ~ Tasty lemon muffins


I tend to do less baking in the summer. I can’t think of any particular reason why – maybe it’s having a hot oven on in an already hot kitchen that puts me off. But I thought I’d have a go at making some lovely tasty muffins with a refreshing lemon zing – which would taste delicious with a scoop of ice-cream! There is a surprise melting centre of lemon curd hidden in the middle of the muffins too!

Ingredients: 100g butter, 250g self-raising flour, 100g golden caster sugar, 2 eggs, 125ml low-fat natural yoghurt, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 2 tablespoons of milk, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, lemon curd.

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Melt the butter and once cooled, whisk in the eggs, yoghurt, milk and lemon juice.  Stir into the dry mixture then spoon into muffin cases and add a teaspoon of lemon curd to the centre of the mixture before baking in the oven at 200C for 20 minutes until well risen and golden.
