      WONDERFUL GUT MUFFINS! Love the flavor of the ginger and lemon (lemon's one of my favorites anyway). Easy to make even with the grating. I made mine gluten-free using 1/2 cup each blanched almond and sorghum flours, and added 3/4 teaspoon xanthum gum. They needed to bake the whole 20 minutes, but were moist and delicious right out of the oven. I ended up with 9 muffins! Thanks for posting cookiedog ~ made for ZWT 6 ~ GERMANY/BENELUX region for the Queens of Quisine!

      I followed this to the letter, except for using all-purpose flour. However, I only ended up with 6 muffins that were not particularly huge. However, the ginger and lemon flavors really came through, without being overly sweet. I will be making these again. Made for ZWT6.

      I really like the nice like flavor these muffins have!! Made as directed EXCEPT I didn't see that the recipe only made 8 and I divided the batter into 12 muffin cups, thus smaller sized muffins...but that's my fault. Will be making these again, for sure! Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds
