Please enjoy this little video. It will help make sense of the rest of this post.
We love the comedian Jim Gaffigan. If you haven’t watched his stuff, please do. He is funny and clean and spends most of his stand-up comedy routine talking about food. Now that’s my type of funny! He is the person who introduced me to the very obvious fact that muffins are just cake for breakfast.
Who am I to argue with a professional?
I made some breakfast cake this morning. It wasn’t intentional, but I did happen to read some food blogs before even getting out of bed this morning. (Curse you, work iPad!) Can it be helped that I stumbled upon Lemon Muffins by A Southern Grace in my internet experience this morning?
No, I didn’t think so.
That being said, you might as well try these guys. I did. Who cares if giving into peer pressure is not as popular as it was when I was in middle school? Everybody’s making these…
And I know why! The topping turns into a nice, light, crunchy top as the butter melts the sugar into pure deliciousness. Don’t forget about the fresh lemon juice that goes inside.
We’re practically eating fruit here, people. Work with me.
I ate three of them in the name of my blog. I had to get pictures, after all. And then I took some to my sister today, so I didn’t have an unnecessary amount of lemon sugary goodness in my house all day. I only made a quarter batch but still got a dozen “muffins” out of the recipe.
If you call them “muffins” long enough, by the way, your brain starts to connect all the missing synapses to make it work. Make these yesterday!
P.S. How are these pictures treating everybody? Better than a slideshow?
