  • 2 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup vanilla yoghurt

  3. Make well in centre of mixture. Add lemon rind, lemon juice, yoghurt, oil and egg. Stir with a wooden spoon until mixture is just combined.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared pans. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, swapping pans halfway through cooking. Make sure muffins are lightly golden and cooked through. Leave to cool in pan for about 3 minutes.
