Lemon Pound Cake Muffins #MuffinMonday


I love citrus year round but nothing beats the New England January blahs like cooking and baking with lemons.  That's why for this month's #MuffinMonday I chose Lemon Pound Cake Muffins from Taste of Home. 

 

I did make a few small changes to the Lola B's recipe.  I hate to see anything to go waste so I zested the lemon into the batter before juicing it to use in the glaze. I used a large cookie scoop to fill my paper lined cups, it makes it so easy to divide the batter up evenly.

 

Mine baked in exactly 20 mins, but be sure not to overbake.  I moved them to a wire rack to cool and before glazing them I popped a rimmed baking sheet under the rack to catch the excess.  For the glaze I used 1 cup of powdered sugar and the juice of a large lemon.  For us, that was plenty to cover all 12 muffins.

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the sour cream and extracts. Add lemon zest.
