I love to have the dough for these muffins ready and waiting in the refrigerator when company comes. They bake up in just 20 minutes and taste delicious warm. Their cake-like texture makes them perfect for breakfast, dessert or snacking.

Lemon Crumb Muffins

  • 6 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, sour cream, butter, lemon peel and juice. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full.
