Lemon Drizzle Skinny Mini Muffins

By Mariella Forte | 3 Jul 2015 | RECIPES

My favourite flavour for summer desserts has to be lemon. This recipe has a strong lemon flavour as it features in the sponge, the sticky syrup and the glaze. It calls for low fat yoghurt and no oil or butter – however the syrup and eggs help keep it moist and yummy. As you probably know, fat contains more than twice the calories of protein and carbohydrates. Keeping the fat content low in your home baking will help keep the calories at bay. We’ve supplemented a reduced sugar content with stevia so the cakes will satisfy your sweet tooth without being super high in sugar.

FOR THE MINI MUFFINS – Serves 12 (116 calories | 1g fat (0.3g sat fat)| 13g sugar each)

For the loaf you will need:

  • 3 large eggs (180g)
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 1/2 tsp high quality vanilla essence
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 235g low fat yoghurt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 180g plain flour

For the Syrup:

  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2-3tbsp Stevia
  • pinch xanthan gum

For the Glaze:

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • squeeze of lemon juice

STEP 1: Whisk together your eggs, lemons, vanilla, sugar and yoghurt until light and fluffy.

STEP 2: In a separate bowl combine flour and baking powder and fold into your eggy mix.

STEP 3: Bake in mini muffin liners on 180°c for 20 minutes. The mix should be half a cm from the top of the liner.

STEP 4: Combine your syrup ingredients and brush over the baked muffins followed by a dollop of glaze

P.S. Top tip: Candy your own lemons for a shiny jewel like topping! Slice your lemons finely and boil in sugar and water for one hour. Dehydrate them on a low temperature in the oven for 2 hours. Cut into small triangles to top your muffins!
