Lemon Yoghurt Muffins

This recipe is from Nigella Lawson's How to be a Domestic Goddess. They are called Baby Bundts in the book as Ms. Lawson used cute mini-Bundt molds. I did not have any bundt molds so I used good old muffin trays which worked just as well. These muffins were very quick to make and tasted light and healthy. Great with a cup of tea. The lemony icing on top makes them luscious and feels like a special treat.

Recipe (adapted from How to be a Domestic Goddess):
125 ml natural yoghurt
75gm butter, melted
2 large eggs
zest of 1 lemon
150gm plain flour
1/2tsp bicarbonate soda
pinch of salt
125gm caster sugar

200gm icing sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Preheat oven 170 C
Mix yoghurt, melted butter, eggs and lemon zest. Put all the dry ingredient in a dry bowl. Fold dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Fill the muffin tin and bake for 20-25 mins. To make icing, add enough icing sugar to the juice of 1 lemon to get a condense-milk like consistency. Drizzle on the cooled muffins.



  1. It's like a could reach into the screen and take a bite of one of the Baby Bundts -- great photo, Lin!!!

  2. Thanks, Jo! I do like how the icing just melts around the cake. I am going to bake a chocolate cake this week from Nigella's book.
