Here is a simple base recipe that I throw together a little from time to time. The lemon flavor comes from one and a half lemons (both lemon juice and finely grated zest). One lemon gives approx. 50g of lemon juice, so 1.5 normal-sized lemons are usually good.

Perfect for some "fika" and can easily be spiced up with e.g. a little icing sugar or whipped cream and strawberries. You can also top the muffins with a mixture of lemon juice and icing sugar for a thin sweet and sour layer on top.
