Lemon Mini Muffins with Lime Scented Sugar

September 4, 2014

If you are craving a taste of lemon, then these scrumptiously delicious muffins are just what you need.  What a great recipe to make for our 100th post!  This recipe comes from Cuisine at Home, December 2008. 

1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. baking soda

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/4 c. lemon-flavored yogurt

2 Tbsp. minced fresh lemon

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

6 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened (4 Tbsp)

1 egg

Lime Sugar:  1/4 c. sugar, zest of 1 lime, and 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease and flour mini muffin pan (our recipe made 22).  Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, soda, and nutmeg together in a bowl.  Blend yogurt, minced lemon, and vanilla together in a cup.  Cream 6 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 stick butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until light; add egg and beat well.  Alternately blend flour and yogurt mixtures into butter, starting and ending with flour; do not overmix.  Fill cups of prepared muffin pan three-quarters full, then bake until about 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Pulse remaining sugar with lime zest in a food processor until zest is minced.  Brush or dip warm muffins with 3 Tbsp. melted butter and roll in sugar mixture to coat.

(To mince a lemon, remove the peel, cut lemon into chunks, remove seeds, then pulse in a processor until the texture of oatmeal.)
