While you may not always think of summer as the time to be whipping up batches of baked goods in the kitchen, muffins are one baked good that take such little time and effort, that you may want to re-think that. Freshly baked muffins are not only perfect for adding to your kids packed lunch for summer camp, but they are a make-ahead and good-for-you breakfast, perfect for lazy cottage mornings and they can be great for tossing in your bag when you’re on-the-go.

Our recipe for a deliciously tart lemon loaf can be easily converted into mini (or even regular sized) muffins! Simply follow the directions, but instead of pouring batter into a loaf pan, line 2 mini muffin trays with paper liners, fill each 2/3 full and bake until puffed, golden and cooked through (a toothpick when inserted in the center of the muffin should come out clean.) Enjoy!
