Muffin Mondays / Lemon Muffins

Muffin Mondays are back! I totally slacked off on this fun little ritual during the school year because, well, it wasn’t fun. The kids had to leave for school so early that to get up any earlier to make muffins was not fun. Of course, the smart thing would have been to make the batter on Sunday night but I always forgot in the craziness of preparing for the week.

So maybe it’ll just be a summer thing for our family. There’s more time to enjoy the process, plus it’s much more fun to bake with Will. He’s perfect for the job: he’s an early riser and he’s obsessed with the KitchenAid mixer. (Who can blame him? The thing is awesome.)

I did a quick search for lemon muffins (because I have lemons) and spotted this recipe on The Awl. It looked like it’d be simple and delicious, and it was.

The only thing I’d add to the recipe (which is worth a read in and of itself), is that our cooking time was closer to 20 minutes and we used a wooden skewer instead of a wooden spoon to poke the holes. They turned out great and we’ll definitely be making them again.
