Strawberry-lemon muffins

Fresh, soft, mouth-watering muffins with seasonal fruit - strawberries :) lemon + strawberries = a perfect match :) I do recommend. Even children should be smitten with them :)


  • 1,5 glass of flour
  • 1,5 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 115 g of butter
  • 3/4 glass of sugar
  • 2 big eggs
  • lemon peel made from 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1/2 glass of buttermilk or kephir or 12-18% sour cream
  • 1-1,5 glass of strawberries
  • ready made icing sugar (you can use self-made from this recipe)
  1. All the ingredients should be in a room temperature. 
  2. Sieve the flour and the baking powder into a bowl. Put aside. 
  3. Put the butter and sugar in a food processor's bowl and using a mixer, mix it till it gets bright and smooth. 
  4. Add one egg, mix till it links. Add another egg, mix again till smooth. Add lemon peels and lemon juice, mix. 
  5. Taking turns, add a little flour and a little sour cream to the dough, stir after adding every ingredient till it links with the dough, using a tablespoon. Continute, till both ingredients finish. 
  6. Take you muffin forms, put paper muffin cups inside (if your muffin form is made of silicone, you don't have to put paper muffin cups). 
  7. Put the dough to every muffin cup to its 3/4 height (or less, not more) 
  8. Put in every muffin 3-5 pieces of strawberry. Don't worry if they stick out of the muffin dough.
  9. Bake in 180C for 20-25 minutes. Using a toothpick, check whether your cupcakes are ready or not. Read how to do it HERE.
  10. Cool them. 
  11. You can decorate your muffins with icing sugar, either ready-made or you can prepare your own. 
  12. If ready made - follow the instructions on the packing (boil the packing), cut a small hole in the packing, and making round moves slowly pour the icing on every muffin. 
  13. Home-made icing sugar here. 
  14. Bon appetit!
