In the evening on a weekday or weekend, sometimes you want something tasty. You can buy snacks in the store, or you can quickly bake something yourself. For example, lemon muffins. Citrus will give ordinary pastries a unique touch of piquancy and freshness.

These lemon muffins are fluffy and tender and ready in just 30 minutes.

I want to note that this recipe is so simple that my daughter, who is 9 years old, cooks muffins. She dreams of becoming a chef, and says, “Mom, I’ll be like you,” and goes to cook cookies or muffins or pizza. And this recipe is one of her favorites. Yes, soon I will become a size larger, but how tasty it is to eat your child’s pastries 🙂

Tips & variations

  • To make lemon muffins, you must adhere to the recipe and the technology of step-by-step recipes, as well as follow the following recommendations:

  • All ingredients to be used for baking should be at room temperature. Only in this case the dough will rise well, and the muffins will be airy.

  • It is not at all necessary to beat the products with a mixer, mixing with an ordinary whisk or even a fork is enough.

  • Muffin dough cannot be stored for a long time, because it loses its lifting properties. Cupcakes should be baked right away.

  • It is advisable to put special paper liners in ceramic or metal baking dishes so that the dough does not stick to them.

  • If paper inserts are not at hand at the right time, the molds must be lubricated with vegetable oil.

  • Silicone molds do not require any additional manipulations, products do not stick to them.

  • It is recommended to fill the forms halfway or 2/3 of the volume. If everything is done correctly, the muffins are sure to “grow up” well.

  • Send muffins to be baked only in a well-heated, not cold oven.

  • The baking time depends on the size of the mold and the oven itself. On average, small cupcakes are baked for 10-20 minutes.

  • The readiness of homemade cakes can be easily determined with a toothpick. If after piercing the muffins there is no dough left on the stick, then they are ready.

  • So that lemon muffins do not get bored, you can constantly change the filling, using a wide variety of types of fillers for this. You can safely take cottage cheese, fresh berries or fruits. They will only make lemon pastries richer and tastier.
