These muffins are really moist and really lemony. This is my oldest son's favorite muffin. The recipe come's from an old copy of Bon Appetite. My Dad always likes to add a few lemons into packages he sends us from California, which always makes these muffins extra special. 9-16-09 Since this was first posted it has become very difficult to find yogurt in the 8oz size so you either have to buy 2 6oz yogurts or add a little extra plain yogurt or a little sour cream. This is a very firm dough, not a loose batter like most muffins, but the muffins still come out nice and moist, enjoy!
This delicious recipe came from the American Dairy Association,courtesy of Home Cooking. Packed with oats, cranberries, and buttermilk, this is a treat for the eyes and the tummy! Cranberries are grown in the Mid West, New England and Canada!
From the book "The Best of Pantry, from the editors of Harrowsmith Country Life." Posted as per request. Substitute poppy seeds for the sunflower seeds and grated apple for the carrots in these delicious muffins that can be tailor made for different tastes.
I love William Shatner and cappuccino; what could be better, hehe. These are on several sites, the goldmine again, where there are bunches of other celebrity recipes. I used instant coffee instead of espresso powder cause where I live that's all there is. It works fine.
Only try these if you love lemon as they are pretty intense. I used the grater on the zest of one lemon and it was no where near 1-2 tbs but I think it was plenty. We liked them but my son preferred his without the glaze.
I'd like to try the glaze with confectioners sugar and try the muffins with vanilla yogurt some time.
