Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 16 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.
