Lemon Muffins and lemon cream drizzle

I made these muffins for my friend who was coming to meet me after a long time.I wanted to make something simple and easy and also delicious for the summery afternoon tea.These muffins were nice and crumby and with the drizzle it was just perfect with a cup of tea.

I somehow feel baking muffins are easier than making a cake...So you will see i have many muffin recipes posted.They are just so cute and pop in the mouth deliciousness.
