Lime Yogurt Muffins

Ingredients:
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
1 tablespoon grated lime peel
1 teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup lime or plain yogurt
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Topping:
1/3 cup lime juice
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl, beat the egg, yogurt, butter and lime juice. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes; leave muffins in pan. Using a toothpick, poke 6-8 holes in each muffin. In a saucepan, combine the topping ingredients. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Spoon over warm muffins.
