These are delicious served warm or cold.
2 cups self-raising flour
3/4 cup sugar
75 g butter
1 cup milk
grated rind of 1 large or 2 small lemons
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
Mix flour and sugar in bowl.
Melt butter, add the milk, egg and lemon rind. Beat well with a fork to combine.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until ingredients are only just dampened. Do not over mix.
Divide the mixture between 12 greased muffin cups. Bake at 200 C for 10 minutes.
Stir together the lemon juice and sugar and drizzle over the muffin as soon as they are removed from the oven. I like to prick the top of the muffins with a toothpick so the flavour soaks in more. Leave to stand in the pans for only a few minutes as the syrup will harden and stick the muffins to the pans.
