Gluten-free lemon muffins
Prep Time30 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time45 mins
Ingredients
 150 g butter or margarine
 2 dl sugar
 2 eggs
 1 lemon juice
 ½ dl cold water if needed
 2 tsp vanilla sugar
 2 tsp baking powder
 1 lemon peel grated
Frosting
 10 dl icing sugar
 100 g margarine
 200 g cream cheese
 2 tsp vanilla extract
 2 tsp lemon juice
Directions

Wisk butter and sugar together. Take aside 2 tsp of lemon juice for the frosting (if you'll be making it). Pour the rest of the juice into a measuring cup. Fill it with cold water if needed. The total amount of liquid should be ½ dl. Add the eggs and liquid to the batter. Mix in dry ingredients and add to the mix. Grate the used lemon and add in.

Divide the batter into muffin cups. Bake in 200-degrees for 15 minutes.

FROSTING
Mix cream cheese, margarine and vanilla extract. Add icing sugar 1-2 dl at a time until you have added about 8-9 dl. Split the frosting into two bowls. Add yellow food coloring and lemon juice to the other bowl. Add the icing sugar a few tbsp at a time until the consistency is the same.

Place a piping bag on a tall glass and add white frosting on the one side of the bag. Then add the yellow to the other. Tightly seal of the bag and pipe out frosting until the colors meet each other. Frost the muffins and let them chill before serving.
