Lemonade Muffins

My sister actually sent me this recipe. It's originally from this blog. I'm a sucker for a good muffin, so I was really intrigued by these. An easy alternative to the typical lemon poppyseed muffin.

Try it. You'll like it.

Lemonade Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 beaten egg

1 (6 ounce) can frozen lemonade, thawed

1/4 cup milk

1/3 cup cooking oil

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl, mix only 1/2 cup lemonade, egg, milk, and oil. Add to dry mix, stirring until just moistened. Gently stir in nuts.

Spoon into prepared pans and bake and bake at 375° F. for 15-20 minutes or tests clean.

While hot, brush with remaining lemonade and sprinkle with white sugar.

YIELD: 8-9 Large Muffins
