Can you tell I love making muffins? Here’s another recipe my entire family LOVES!
Lil’ Citrus Muffins
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 tsp orange, lemon or lime zest
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line or spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray or paper lines. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well.
In another bowl, beat butter and sugar until well blended. Add egg, beat until smooth. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and zest. I usually squeeze 1/2 of the fruit juice into the batter for extra citrus flavor. Add flour mixture, mix just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Drop rounded scoops of batter into each muffin cup. Bake 12-13 minutes or until light golden brown.
For a extra special treat, dip the tops of warm muffins into melted butter and then sugar. I usually skip this step to cut down on the amount of sugar my daughter gets.
