Lemon Crumb Muffins Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place two muffin molds, each with 6-muffin capacity, or one muffin mold with 12-cup capacity on a baking sheet.

FOR THE STREUSEL TOPPING: In a medium bowl, sift together the flour and sugar. Add the butter, working with your fingertips, until the mixture resembles a medium crumb.

FOR THE LEMON GLAZE: In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and lemon juice until smooth and set aside.

TO MAKE THE MUFFINS: In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together. In another large bowl, whisk the eggs, sour cream, butter, lemon juice and zest together. By hand, gently mix the dry ingredients into the egg mixture. Be careful not to overwork the batter. If there are lumps, they will disappear during the baking. The less you work the batter, the more tender the muffins will be.

Fill the muffin molds with the batter. Sprinkle with the streusel topping and bake in the center of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center or a muffin comes out clean. To prevent the muffins from getting soggy after baking, remove the cooked muffins from their mold and place them on a rack. With a skewer or toothpick, pierce 2/3 of the way into each warm muffin. Drizzle the lemon glaze over the muffins. Serve warm.

I was sooo excited to try this recipe, it seemed to be just what I was looking for. I hate to say it but I was not that impressed. I was expecting a bakery quality muffin (as it looks to be in the picture). This was not even close. I followed the directions exactly as stated but the muffins fell in the center and because it did not say how full to fill them the first twelve overflowed. I actually got 24 muffins out of this recipe not 12. Also the glaze seemed kind of weird because it just called for sugar not powdered sugar. I think if I ever attempt these again i will try powdered sugar instead for the glaze. Mostly this recipe was really a dissaster, but the overall flavor of the muffin was good so I gave it a three. I do live in high altitude which also could have affected it.
