Method

  1. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin cases. With an electric whisk, whisk the butter, 250g of the sugar, eggs, flour, zest of 2 lemons and juice from 1 lemon until just combined – don’t over-whisk. Fill the cases two thirds full, then bake on a middle shelf for 30 mins, until a skewer poked in comes out clean.

  2. Cool for 10 mins, then transfer cakes to a cooling rack on a tray and poke each a few times with a skewer. Pour remaining lemon juice over remaining 150g sugar and zest 1 lemon, and immediately spoon over the cakes. Leave to cool.

I agree with Lesley, mine overspilled as well but they did taste fantastic.

Made it in cupcake cases as I didn't have muffin cases and it made around 20 good-sized cupcakes. I would really recommend this recipe and it is easy and very popular!

far too much mixture for 12 muffin cases - mine spilt over and made a real mess. will try again with 16 cases.

My husband rated this the best good food recipe ever!! The only thing was nest time I would use cupcake cases & a bun tin & get more of them as found them rich. Hubby disagreed!!
