Lemon Meringue Muffins

7:37 AM


TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.

MAKES: 12 servings






Ingredients



  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1 cup sugar, divided

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract

  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 egg whites


Directions



  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and 2/3 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in yogurt, lemon juice, peel and extract.

  2. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture; stir just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake 17-19 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes clean. Remove from the oven. Increase oven setting to 400°.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form.

  4. Spread or pipe meringue onto muffins. Bake 6-8 minutes longer or until meringue is golden brown.

  5. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 dozen.
