My Lemon Muffins Recipe I show you here.

The muffins with lemon are deliciously refreshing.

The sweet and sour taste composition is especially tasty on warm days.

The small cakes are quickly prepared and practical when guests come for tea or coffee at short notice.

As a host you have a slim leg with homemade cakes 😉

For the preparation, I recommend the use of a muffin tin and muffin paper moulds.

This way the muffins can be easily loosened and get the desired shape.

I wish you all the best and would be happy if you share the article on Facebook.
