Lemon Chocolate Chip Muffins (Eggless)

Again eggless?? Yes,dear friends..Some of my friends have started asking me the same question,Have I given up eggs? No..But for sometime as we are observing lent till Easter and so as part of that I have given up all my non veg stuffs for a while..And now when I started eggless bakes,am really enjoying these,never thought  about a cake without eggs earlier and now blogging has given me the courage to try out eggless bakes.Thanx to all my blogger buddies who post their eggless recipes and Thanx to all my dearies who support these eggless bakes at my space through their sweet shower of comments:-)


 Baked goods with lemon zest or lemon juice gives a unique flavor.I love the aroma and taste of lemon in cakes & muffins ,so this is another interesting eggless version of muffins.The chocolate chips in these give a nice crunchy marbling effect.And the glaze on top gives a super glossy look (you can appreciate that in pics)which can be served without any additional toppings !!






Ingredients
all purpose flour 1 1/2 cup
baking powder 1 tsp
baking soda 3/4 tsp
yogurt 1 cup
sugar 3/4 cup
butter 6 tbsp
chocolate chips 1/2 cup (optional)
lemon zest 1 tbsp
lemon juice 2 tbsp
salt a pinch

for topping
lemon juice 1/3 cup
sugar 1/4 cup
lemon zest 1tsp

For decorating
lemon small slices
whipped cream 2 tbsp



Method-
-Sift the flour and add the salt.
-Line a muffin tray with baking cups sprayed with oil.
-Mix half the sugar and yogurt,add in the baking powder,baking soda and leave aside till its frothy and bubbles up.
-Beat the butter with remaining sugar till soft.
-Preheat oven to 400degrees F.
-Mix the lemon zest,lemon juice and add it to the dry ingredients.Add the yogurt mix and using a hand mixer ,mix well.
-Fold in the chocolate chips into it  and spoon the batter into the baking cups until its 2/3rd of the cup.
-Place it in the oven & bake for 20 -25 mins.
-Cool on wire rack & in the meantime prepare the glaze.
-Add the lemon juice ,lemon zest and sugar,mix well.Boil over medium heat and turn off flame ,coo and pour over the prepared muffins.
-I just scooped a bit of whipped cream on top on some of the muffins too as kids love this!!



NOTES
* While removing the zest from lemon or other citrus fruits,be sure to take only the thin colored portion or outer zest.The white pith will give your dish the bitter taste.
* Adding glaze gives a nice shine to muffins & flavor too.This glaze is a very mild one.
* The adding of whipped cream is optional just for kids !!
