This afternoon I made the most of Amelia’s nap time and made some lemon muffins. They are really easy and tasted delicious.

2 eggs
125ml vegetable oil
250ml semi skimmed milk
Juice and zest of one lemon
200g sugar
400g self raising flour

Preheat the oven to 200 or 180 fan oven. Gas mark 6.
Line enough muffin tins for 12 muffins.
Mix the dry ingredients together first, whisk in the milk, oil and eggs. Add in the lemon juice and zest last.
Cook them for 20-25 minutes until golden and bouncy to touch.

For the icing:
Icing sugar and juice of one lemon

Mix the lemon juice with icing sugar, adding more sugar until it is as tangy/sweet as you’d like it.
