Suitable for carneval (in German: “Fastnacht”) I baked some clown muffins. Those muffins are made with yogurt and lemon icing.
for 12 muffins
100 g soft butter
175 g sugar
1/2 package bourbon vanilla sugar
1 pinch of salt
250 g flour
2 tsp baking powder
150 g yogurt
100 g powder sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
Colored sugar pens
Beat 100g soft butter and 175g sugar and 1/2 package bourbon vanilla sugar until it’s fluffy.
Add 2 eggs with a pinch of salt.
Mix 250g flour and 2 tsp baking powder and stir alternatly with 150g yogurt in the batter.
Fill the batter into the muffin pan and bake at 175°C for 25 – 30 min.
Combine 100g powder sugar with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and divide on the cooled muffins.
Put one red smartie as the nose in the middle of the muffin.
Press sideways 4 smarties at a time as hair on the lemon icing.
Paint on mouth, eyes and hat with colored sugar pens.
