Lemon Muffins

Lemon Muffin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • grated rind of 1 unwaxed lemon
  • juice of 1 to 2 lemons
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 200°C (gas mk 6, 400°F). Place the egg, oil, milk and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat together until sugar has dissolved. Add the lemon rind and lemon juice and mix.

In another large bowl, thoroughly mix the flour, baking powder and salt.

Add the liquid mix to the dry, and roughly mix it in - it does not have to be absolutely smooth.

Fill a muffin tray with paper muffin cases, and then fill each case approximately two thirds with the muffin mixture. Bake the muffins for 25 minutes.

This recipe will be available in metric measurements soon.

Makes approximately 12 muffins.

This is a project from my time studying at the University of the West of England between 2007 - 2011.
