Meyer Lemon Mascarpone Muffins

by Laura on March 23, 2011

We’ve been on a muffin tear this week.  But our Honey Girl’s Mr. Right arrives tomorrow morning from Alabama for a visit.  And since his favorite meal of the day is breakfast, she’s test driving another muffin idea we had tonight to make sure it’s perfect for an airport basket-full-of-love welcome.  As we were walking through the co-op, picking up some delicious things in which to poach some fish for dinner, I thought the richness of mascarpone might be nice in a muffin, and she immediately disappeared towards the produce section for some beautiful meyer lemons.  This recipe will definitely be in our repertoire from here on out.  I happened to have some candied meyer lemon slices in the refrigerator for a glow-y garnish, but they are delicious all by themselves, moist and rich, with a bright but soft lemon flavor and the lightness of a muffin.  (See our true muffin obsession here and here.  No muffin imposters, please!)  They’re especially nice straight from the oven with a generous lashing of fresh butter.  Now that’s a nice welcome.
