Double Lemon Muffins



1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
Rind of 1 lemon (yellow part only)
1/4 cup lemon juice


3 1/2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
Grated rind of 2 lemons
1 cup milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 eggs
1 cup (2 sticks) melted butter

Additional sugar for topping

For the syrup: Combine sugar, water, lemon rind and lemon juice in a
medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Cover and boil over medium heat for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the batter: In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt and sugar; stir well. In a small bowl, combine lemon rind, milk, lemon juice and eggs. Stir well. Add egg mixture and melted butter to dry ingredients. Stir quickly, just to combine.

Pour the batter into 18 greased muffin tin cups, filling almost to the
top. Sprinkle each muffin with about 1 teaspoon sugar. Bake in a preheated, 375-degree oven for about 20 minutes, until rounded and golden. Remove from oven and place pans on a wire rack.

With a thin skewer, poke 4 or 5 holes in each muffin, from the top to the bottom. While muffins are still warm, spoon the lemon syrup over the muffins.
Makes 18 muffins.
