Ingredient for 12 muffins:

…for the batter:

  • 250 grams flour
  • 125 grams soft butter
  • 125 grams sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 75 milliliters cream
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar
  • 1 level teaspoon baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • Peel of ½ organic lemon

…for the topping:

  • 1 lemon
  • About 200 grams powdered sugar
  • 12 apricot halves

Kitchen Helper:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixer/food processor
  • Muffin tin
  • Paper cases/liner
  • Grater
  • Cooling rack
  • Sieve
  • Lemon juicer



Preheat the oven to 180°C (top/bottom heat). Line a muffin tin with paper cases. Finely grate ½ organic lemon.

…for the batter:

Mix together 125 grams of soft butter, 125 grams sugar, 1 sachet of vanilla sugar, a pinch of salt & the lemon peel with a mixer or a kitchen machine for about 2 minutes. Then add a total of 2 eggs in succession and mix in each egg separately for about 1 minute.

Mix a level teaspoon of baking powder with 250 grams of flour. Add the flour alternately with 75 milliliters of cream to the batter & stir in until all ingredients have been used up & you got a smooth & thick batter.

…for the muffins:

Give the muffin batter into the prepared tin, fill the molds only ⅔, because the muffins will rise up during baking. Then bake the muffins for about 20 minutes in a preheated oven until golden brown. Get the muffins out of the oven & allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.

…for the topping:

Drain apricot halves using a sieve or colander. Squeeze out a lemon with a juicer and gradually add about 200 grams of powdered sugar (depending on how juicy the lemon is) to the lemon juice. Mix the powdered sugar and lemon juice until a smooth & relatively viscous icing.

Dab 1 good teaspoon of icing in the middle of each muffin and decorate with an apricot halve to shape them as fried eggs.

Have fun baking!
