Lemon Streusel Muffins

1 1/2 C flour
1 C sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 C plain yogurt
1/2 C butter, melted
1 T grated lemon peel
2 tsp fresh lemon juice

For the streusel:
3 T flour
3 T sugar
1 T cold butter

For the glaze:
1/4 C powdered sugar
1 T fresh lemon juice

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, butter, lemon peel and lemon juice. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix, just until moistened. Let batter rest for 5 minutes. Grease muffin cups and fill the cups 3/4 full. In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar and butter. Using your hands, or a pastry blender, mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the streusel over the batter.

Bake muffins at 350 degrees for 15-20 miutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes and remove onto a wire rack.

Mix together the powdered sugar and enough lemon juice to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over warm muffins.

I found this on The Sisters' Cafe
