  • Prep time 10 mins
  • Cooking time 15 mins
  • Serves

    2 cups self raising flour
    3/4 cup Chelsea White Sugar
    Finely grated rind of 1 lemon
    1 egg
    1 cup milk
    60g butter, melted

    Lemon Drizzle Topping
    1/3 cup lemon juice
    1/3 cup Chelsea White Sugar


    Preheat oven to 180°C fan bake or 200°C regular bake. Grease a 12 hole muffin tin.

    Mix flour and Chelsea White Sugar together in a bowl.

    Beat egg, milk and lemon rind together then add to dry ingredients. Add melted butter and stir until only just combined.

    Pour into prepared muffin tin and bake for 15-20 minutes. While they are cooking make the drizzle topping by mixing the lemon juice and Chelsea White Sugar together well.

    As soon as the muffins are cooked (they should spring back when lightly pressed) take out of the oven and spoon over the lemon drizzle topping until it is all gone. Leave the muffins to sit in the muffin tin for approximately 3 minutes before taking out and leaving to cool on a wire rack.

Easy recipe, turned out quite dense, doesn't taste bad.

Taste yummy and easy to make.

Works very well, but you definitely need to let the muffins sit for a bit once you have drizzled the lemon juice/sugar mix otherwise it is a bit sticky.

100% AMAZING! Love this recipe!

Easy and tasty

Very yummy muffins. Only thing I'd say is makes 10, not 12.

They don't look to good but they super delicious.

My partner told me they were the best lemon muffins he’s ever had when I first made the recipe! It’s so easy and seriously delicious! I agree with him... the best!

Really quick and easy. They had a strong flavour and were also very moist


They didn't look very appealing before I baked them but once they came out of the oven and I added the syrup. OMG they were delicious.

Super easy and tasty recipe. Mild enough for kids to enjoy too. I used a bit extra rind as had two smaller lemons. And used a pastry brush for the liquid drizzle as that made the least mess

The best lemon muffin easy and super yummy

I thought that they were very nice and had a strong lemon flavor

not the best lemon recipe

Super quick and simple! I didn't have enough milk so topped it up with lemon juice. Be a great recipe for kids! Light lemon flavour with the topping more intense. Yum!

Only used 1/4 cup of sugar with lemon curd in the middle, gorgeous x

I loved it!!

Made it for a bake sale, sold out fast!!!

Hi this is amazing.Tastes so good

I've made these lemon muffins a few times now. They are delicious!

Thank you for your recipes everything I have made I just love, your lemon loaf is a real hit.

Very yummy. I added extra lemon zest. Delish!!

Awesome recipe! Moist and tangy and I like that they use about half the amount of butter you find in a lot of muffin recipes. Quick to make too..these will definitely be a go-to recipe for me.

These were beautiful. Not overly lemony; just a little bit of a sweet tang. Simple but lovely.
