This recipe is contest-winning. For 24 muffins, I used 2/3 of the recipe (5 eggs).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease or line 40 muffin cups with paper liners.
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.
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.
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.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it night before , then finish it off the next day.
