In our community cookbook, we ask readers to submit their best-loved recipes. Here’s a taste of what got the highest raves in the Southern Living test kitchen this month: fresh-from the oven muffins.

From the Kitchen of Peggy Sharpe
Collierville, TN

“My co-workers demand these any time we have an office breakfast.” Peggy adds a sweet drizzle over warm Lemon Muffins that we love: Stir together 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice.

Lemon Muffins


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, and lemon zest; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into a lightly greased 12-cup muffin pan, filling two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden.

Share Your Recipe! If it wows the Test Kitchen, we’ll feature it in the magazine and send you a SL cookbook:

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I absolutely love anything with lemon in it! This sounds delicious with the sweet drizzle on top. I’ll be making these for me and my roommates for breakfast soon!
