Sweet and floral Meyer lemons are the star of the show in these Meyer Lemon Mini Muffins. Greek yogurt keeps them so light and moist – they are delicious!
Meyer Lemon – up until recently I didn’t really know what this fruit was. I had heard of them and seen them on many restaurant menus, but I had never actually researched meyer lemons or bought them. And then I saw a bag of the gorgeous things at Trader Joes the other day and all of that changed. I am now obsessed with Meyer Lemons, and in particular with these meyer lemon mini muffins!
Meyer lemons are a brighter yellow color than regular lemons – they almost have a hint of orange to the color. The skin is smooth in texture. The flavor is sweet and almost floral and is less acidic than a normal lemon. They are perfect. Haha! But really, I love them and they are in season right now so if you see them at the market, I definitely recommend buying them!! And then, making these muffins.
These mini muffins are made with meyer lemon zest in the batter, and then are soaked in a glaze made from meyer lemon juice – giving these tons of delicious citrus flavor. These are the moistest little mini muffins ever – that starts with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt in the batter. Yogurt in a recipe always leads to a moist muffin. Then when the muffins come out of the oven, I poured a glaze made from the lemon juice mixed with some brown sugar over the warm muffins. They soak up the mixture and become so flavorful and moist. They are so good!
Almost dangerously good – I couldn’t stop popping these lil guys into my mouth. Mini muffins are just so easy to eat!
