  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease or line 40 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Mix 6 cups flour, 4 cups sugar, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk eggs, sour cream, melted butter, lemon zest, and lemon juice together in a separate bowl until smooth; pour egg mixture into flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them 3/4 full.
  3. Mix 3/4 cup flour and 3/4 cup sugar together in a bowl; cut cold butter cubes into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumb mixture atop each muffin.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes in the pans before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

So, so delicious. I scaled the recipe to 10 servings and followed exact, other than adding dried lemon peel to the crumb topping. Excellent texture and just perfect lemon flavor! Convect baked a...

I think there were aspects of this muffin that I really liked, but, it would need a little tweaking to the recipe to work for me. I prepared exactly as the recipe stated, except I added a litt...

I made half of the recipe and wish I had made the whole thing! Not a light muffin, a yummy, rich, heavy piece of deliciousness! Can't wait to make them again.
