Ever since I’ve started baking there are a few things I just can’t get enough of: lemon, streusel, and brooownn butttterrrr. It is seriously the best thing ever and it’s the reason why I stray away from deli food and want bake in the first place.
I just love that nutty sweet smell brown butter has. It gives any ordinary recipe an extra boost in taste and flavor you never though it could have. I’ve might gained a couple pounds because of brown butter but it was totally worth every tasty bite.
I really wanted to combine all my loves together and see if lemon, streusel and brown butter can be friendly in baking terms. And it turns out, they can!
I ended up using brown sugar for my muffins instead because I just simply ran out of granulated sugar. Yes I am so fancy. It gave it more of a denser batter and an extra bit of taste and crunch. But granulated sugar is always the preferred, so do what you want!
