Deliciously soft and tender muffins crammed with lemon flavor and rolled in sugar while still warm. With two types of lemon both the zest and juice, the flavor is prominent in each and every bite.
The crackly sugar coating offers the perfect balance to the bite of the lemon and melts on your tongue in a flurry of sweet and sourness that is delectable.
I like to make mini muffins out of them because they are easier to roll in sugar in their entirety and you get more of the sugary coating with every bite. The buttery sugar makes them. It melts in your mouth when warm and after cooling forms a crunchy bite that is delectable.
I pop them into a paper bag with sugar and gently shake them to coat. Once cooled they may be a little sticky so roll them a second time. Double delicious.
They make the best lazy-morning weekend breakfast treats!
