Crunchy Lemon Muffins

Today i have eaten the sum total of an apple and a muffin....(now 6pm). Food is just not doing it for me at all. :(

One recipe we cook over and over again is crunchy lemon muffins. (thanks neighbour for a ton of lemons - being a single guy he has 2 huge over laden trees which we are allowed to raid anytime we want!)
This recipe is from Alison Holst's (a New Zealand legion) Marvellous Muffins book.

I always double the quantities too .

2 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup sugar

75 grams butter
1 cup milk
1 egg
Grated rind of 2 small or 1 large lemon

1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar

Measure flour and sugar into bowl and toss to mix.
Melt butter, add milk, egg and lemon rind and beat well with a fork to combine.
Add liquids to dry ingredients and combine only intel dry ingredients have been dampened, but not thoroughly mixed.

Makes 12 - make sure your tins are well coated with sprayer use muffin cups.

Bake at 200deg Celsius for 10 minutes.

Mix lemon juice and sugar together and drizzle over muffins before removing from tray.

Yum. Great to freeze and pop into lunches from freezer! I always have 1-2 frozen muffin obtained sin the freezer.
