cold days muffins

calls for muffin making. I love good old plane muffins. No sticky creamy icing. Just soft, tender, and airy muffins. To eat while still warm or to dip in a cup of coffee or hot chocolate.

HERE IS the how's:

Preheat the oven to 180 C degrees. Beat eggs & sugar together until you have a light mix. Melt butter on low heat and mix in the zest of lemons (the heat will extract more of the lemony flavour from the zest). Let it cool a bit. Pour in the slightly cooled butter to the egg & sugar mix.

Measure up flour in a separate bowl and add baking powder. Stir the flower into the egg, sugar and butter mix. It will be thick. If you think it's too thick add 1-2 tbl spoons of milk. Your muffin mix is ready!

 Place the pan with the muffins on the middle shelf in the oven (preheated) for aproximately 20-25 minutes (depends on your oven so keep an eye on them), or until the muffins have turned golden. Allow to cool on a rack for a few minutes. Enjoy!

We are in the process of building a new entrance to our town house. Besides picking lamps, and storage systems to our new entrance, muffin making is just what i need to make December go faster.
