These muffins have two layers - a lemony regular muffin layer topped with a layer of angel food cake, making them "heavenly." You can also make Heavenly Strawberry Muffins by substituting strawberry extract for the lemon extract and red food coloring for yellow food coloring and leaving out the lemon peel.
