Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC
  2. Place the lemon rind, sugar, oil, egg, salt, yoghurt and lemon juice in a large bowl
  3. Beat until well mixed
  4. Add the flours and baking powder; fold in until the flour is just mixed in. Do not over-mix as this will toughen the mixture.
  5. Spoon mixture into lightly oiled or non-stick muffin pans
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean
  7. Leave to stand for 5 minutes before removing from pans and cooling on a rack.
