~~~~~~~~ Joon Appetit ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~ Lemon Sour Cream Muffins ~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ A Tutorial ~~~~~~~~


* So easy & delicious you'll make them often *



* the usual suspects *
* round up these simple ingredients *


* In a medium bowl MIX thoroughly *

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsps. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda

{and yes, in fact, these muffins do defy gravity}


* MELT: 1/2 cup unsalted butter *

PREHEAT OVEN: 350*

{I turn it on warm first. This is how I melt the butter.}


* In a bowl that makes you smile BEAT with a fork: 2 eggs *


* Nicely done *


* You can light up a room with a dollop *

ADD:
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup + 2 TBSP. fresh lemon juice
lemon zest {to your taste}


* Lovely, isn't it? *


* MAKE A WELL in the center of your dry ingredients *


* ADD: The lemony mix & your melted butter *


* GENTLY STIR: Your butter & lemony mix about a little *
It's fun.
Really.

Alternatively
You can mix them together in your
bowl that makes you smile
prior to pouring into your floury well.

But I can't guarantee the fun level.


* LIGHTLY MIX: Your wet & dry ingredients together *
{Don't over mix now. Look at that fluffy batter.}

*LINE: 12-16 muffin cups with
your Wall*E paper liners *

OK. Use your plain pastels.
But it's not going to be the same
and I know you know that.



* How pretty are these muffins? *

* BAKE: about 18-20 minutes *


* You can add a lemon glaze if you like. *
{I did not here. But Evan did later.}

*** These freeze beautifully ***

OMG, Lemon is one of my favorite flavors. I think I'm going to make these and soon. Yummy! Love the step by step pics with instructions below. Makes it real EZ to see the actual process. Thanks for sharing. I just pulled out your Gingerbread Cake recipe that you sent my mom bc I'm going to try that one. It's hanging on my frig now. I think I need to buy more molasses for that one though. ♥♥ Stacy
