I don’t know where you are, but it is sickeningly hot in St. Louis right now. Hot and sticky, disgusting. So disgusting that both my Mom and I have given up on cooking. It’s simply too hot to crank up the stove. It turns out my dog, Cami, is the smartest of us all. She’s taken to sleeping on top of the A/C vent all day, hogging all the cool air. She’s even started eating Watermelon, cold juicy watermelon. What a smart little dog.
So it goes without saying that if the stove’s not getting cranked up, the oven certainly is not going to be used…or is it? If I’m gonna turn on that oven, ruining the delicate temperature balance of cool air in the house, it better be for something good. And folks, this muffin is good, nay, great and completely worth the sacrifice.
Sugar and lemon zest are muddled together and sprinkled on top of the muffin. When it comes out of the oven, it seriously tastes like lemon candy.
People, it’s delicious. Go make it. The end.
