Lemon Muffin :-  – 2 cups all-purpose flour 240g – 1 teaspoon baking soda – 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder – ½ teaspoon salt – 1 tablespoon milk powder optional – 6 tablespoons unsalted butter 85g, softened to room temperature – ¾ cup granulated sugar 150g – 1 Tablespoon lemon zest roughly 2 lemon – 2 large eggs at room temperature – ½ cup 120g plain Greek yogurt or sour cream at room temperature – 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract – 4 Tablespoons 60ml milk – 4 Tablespoons 60ml fresh lemon juice


Make the lemon curd:- Use a double boiler to make curd. When the water boils, whisk the yolks, sugar, zest, juice, and salt in the pan. Whisk until it resembles hollandaise or thick gravy (8-10 minutes).

Step 1

Remove from heat, add butter, and whisk until combined. Cover the curd with cling wrap on top in a small bowl. Store in the fridge until firm.

Step 2

Make the muffin:- Preheat oven to 425F. Mix flour, baking soda, powder, salt, and milk powder in a medium bowl. Set aside. Beat the butter and sugar in a stand mixer or bowl for 4-5 minutes until light and creamy.

Step 3

Then add lemon zest, eggs, Greek yogurt, vanilla, milk, and lemon juice. Just blend. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well combined.

Step 4

Make the streusel:- Put the flour, sugar, and melted butter in a medium-sized bowl. Use a fork to mix the ingredients together until crumbles form.

Step 5

Assemble and bake:- Prepare a 12-muffin pan and fill each muffin liner ¼-1/2 with batter. Spread 1 spoonful of lemon curd in the batter center and divide it amongst muffin cups. They will be over ¾ full.

Step 6

Top muffin cups evenly with streusel. It may seem excessive, but use it! Bake at 425F for 5 minutes, then 350F for 14-15 minutes until firm and brown. Enjoy!
