Nilsson's Finnish Lemon Muffins
Cake-like texture, great lemon flavor and super easy!
lemon, zest and juice
pastry or all-purpose flour
lemon curd (optional- you won't need much)
Preheat oven to 350F, prepare muffin pan with liners
Cream together butter and sugar in mixer until fluffy
Add eggs, one by one
add lemon juice and zest
mix baking powder and flour, then add to wet ingredients
spoon into baking cups (I actually made 16)
spoon 1 tsp of lemon curd onto the top of each muffin cup
bake 30 min or until golden
I used one goose egg instead of 4 chicken eggs, and the lemon curd was a spur-of-the-moment addition. Delightful!
