Lemon and Sage Muffins
Not many words today... just a quick recipe that some of you have asked for: lemon and sage muffins. It's a 'brunch' idea that came up with mum, to have something in between sweet and savoury for her afternoon tea ritual. They are really simple to make and and nice and moist.
LEMON AND SAGE MUFFINS
2 free range eggs
90 gr brown sugar
50 ml lemon juice
the zests of 1 natural lemon
150 gr all purpose flour
40 gr ground almonds (or corn starch)
60 gr butter
3 medium size sage leaves (finely chopped)
4 gr baking powder
1) Finely chop the sage leaves and put them with the butter to melt in a water bath. Let cool.
2) In a bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until you get a foamy mixture.
3) Add the lemon zests and juice, then the melted butter and the ground almonds, the flour one spoon at a time, and stir again until well amalgamated.
4) Butter and flour a muffin tin, spoon in the dough, and bake at 180° for about 18/20 minutes.
