Lemon Yogurt Muffins

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

by Pam on May 5, 2013

My kids both had friends come over for a play date after school and I wanted to make them a tasty little snack. I found this recipe on Macheesmo[1] that looked perfect. I used lemon yogurt instead of Greek yogurt because that is what I had on hand. I also added a bit of vanilla to the muffin mix and more lemon to the glaze but other than that kept it the same. They smelled amazing while they baked and the kids were thrilled to see these on the counter when they came home. They all agreed that the muffins were absolutely delicious and ended up having two each. My kids gobbled up the leftovers the following day and said they still tasted great.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Mix until well combined.

Whisk together the lemon yogurt, zest and juice from the lemon, melted butter, egg, milk, and vanilla together until well combined. Add the flour mixture to the yogurt mixture and stir until just combined.

Pour the batter evenly into the muffin tins.

Place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let them sit for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

Make the glaze by adding the lemon juice to the powdered sugar and mix until well combined. Once the muffins are cool, place a piece of wax paper under the cooling rack with the muffins (for easier clean up), then drizzle the glaze over top of each muffin evenly. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
