Lemon Strawberry Muffins

You can glaze these or sprinkle with sugar.  I chose the sugar option although a zesty lemon glaze would be nice. That’s it, I’m going with the lemon glaze.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 egg beaten slightly
1 cup milk
zest and juice of one lemon
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup chopped strawberries

Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
lemon juice (a few tablespoons, depends on desired consistency)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease a muffin tin.

Mix the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.  Add the zest, then egg, milk, and butter.  Stir enough to dampen the flour.  You don’t want to smooth out the batter. Fill muffin tins  2/3 full and bake for about 25 minutes.

Make glaze by whisking powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth and desired consistency. Dip muffin tops in glaze and let set.
