Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins

We always have some sort of citrus in our fruit bowl. I wanted to make some morning tea treats for the kids' lunchboxes and come up with this little recipe - it's an absolute cinch to make. It's made using a whole lemon (yes skin and all), but would be equally delicious made with either orange or lime. You can leave them plain or simply dust with icing sugar, but for an extra burst of lemony goodness, drizzle with some lemon glaze.

1 whole lemon, quartered and seeds removed
200g butter
3 eggs
150g sugar
300g plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons bi-carb soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons poppy seeds

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Place lemon and butter into TM bowl and mix for 7 seconds/speed 8.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix for 20 seconds/reverse + speed 4.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a muffin tin lined with paper patty cases.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes and cool on a wire rack before icing.
Makes 12

Lemon Glaze:
130g icing sugar
2-3 tablespoons lemon juice

  1. Place the ingredients into the TM bowl and mix for 20 seconds/speed 4 or until smooth.
