Lemon streusel muffins

Lemon Streusel Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 Tb grated lemon peel

2 tsp fresh lemon juice

For the streusel:

3 Tb flour

3 Tb sugar

1 Tb cold butter

For the glaze:

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 Tb fresh lemon juice

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, butter, lemon peel and lemon juice. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix, just until moistened. Let batter rest for 5 minutes. Grease or paper line muffin cups and fill the cups 3/4 full.

In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar and butter. Using your hands or a pastry blender, mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the streusel over the batter.

Bake muffins at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes and remove onto a wire rack.

Mix together the powdered sugar and enough lemon juice to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over warm muffins.

*this makes 12 muffins. Don't be afraid to double it though - it works great.

Pin It!
