Shockingly flavorful muffins with lemon zest, greek yogurt, and a lemon glaze. Really good for a morning snack!


2 Cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (plus some for muffin tins)
1/4 Cup sugar
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 Cups Greek Yogurt
1 lemon, zest and juice (1/2 juice for muffins and 1/2 for glaze)
1 Egg
1/4 Cup milk
Pinch of salt
Lemon Glaze:
2 Cups confectioner's sugar
1/2 lemon, juice only


1) Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl.  Whisk wet ingredients (including lemon juice and zest) into a separate bowl.

2) Stir wet ingredients into dry.  If the batter is too dry, add a bit more milk until it’s a thick batter.

3) Lightly butter a 12 muffin tin (or two 6).

4) Fill tins almost completely to the top.

5) Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean from the center of a muffin.

6) Let muffins cool.

7) For glaze, mix powdered sugar with lemon juice and maybe a few drops of water.

8) Drizzle glaze over cooled muffins.
