{Lemon & Sugar Pancake Muffins}

If your favourite way to eat pancakes is with lemon & sugar like me then you'll love these muffins, they taste just like that. This recipe reminds me of my dad and of him making pancakes for us for dinner, always with a generous squeeze of lemon and a dusting of sugar, I can see myself now wearing bubblegum jeans sitting on the bar stool in our dining room, bamboo wallpaper on the wall, watching dad and waiting for the hot pancake to slide onto my waiting plate, yum.

...the muffins
2 cups self raising flour

3/4 cup sugar
pinch sea salt
75g butter, melted
1 cup milk
1 egg
grated zest of two lemons

...the topping
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 200. Sift together flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl or your mixer bowl. Melt butter and allow it to cool slightly, lightly whisk the egg with the lemon zest.
Add the milk, melted butter and egg to the flour and sugar and mix only until just combined. Spoon into lightly greased muffin trays. Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked when checked with a skewer.

Remove the muffins from the oven, stir together the sugar and lemon juice and drizzle / spoon it over the hot muffins. Let them cool in the tin for ten minutes then remove them to a rack to cool completely.

    I always thought my m&d's preference for lemon and sugar was SOOO restrained and SOOO prudish, when golden syrup was on offer. I am firmly lemon and sugar camp now i am all growned up.
