Oh my.........I've been making these for at least 4 years and have some in the oven right now. They are such a different and easy to eat dessert. We are going to a birthday party and I was asked to bring a dessert.....(sort of an open house affair), and I thought this would be perfect.
I thought I had reviewed this recipe long ago.....but guess it disappeared.
These are really easy to make.....and as far as being too sweet.....that's why everyone likes them I guess.
Thanks Paula and Sharlene for posting. Donna
I'm pretty sure it'd be grounds for divorce if I didn't mark this as a "favorite" and save this recipe forever, lol. My husband LOVED them...and I did a decent amount of damage to the batch, too :). They have the perfect amount of tart & sweet to make them addictive. I did not have Lemon pudding mix so I subbed Vanilla 1 tsp of lemon extract. I also messed up and added the 3 T ea of oil & water to the batter (skipping rt over the oil called for in the batter)...I caught it after my 1st batch was in & added a little more oil, but I didn't notice much difference in either batch. <3 a recipe I can screw up & it still turns out great! (I did make the icing correctly, tho). I let them cool for a couple min b4 dipping them & they held together fine as long as I didn't try to submerse them. After the first layer of icing dried a bit I went back & redipped the whole batch (& I'm glad I did...super yummy!) since I had just enough icing to do so...fabulous! Thanks so much for the recipe!
This is a little over due but I made these for christmas eve at my in-laws and it was a hit!! I did dip in the glaze which made them very sweet. But it was a nice contrast between the tart and sweetness. I can't wait until next family holiday where upon I have a good excuse to make these again.
These were a big hit - I loved the tang of the lemon. We just drizzled the icing, and I am glad we only did that much. I think if I had entirely coated it in the glaze, it would be way too sweet. Thanks.
Made for a friend's Holiday Coffee. Made exactly 60, baked at 350*, for 13-15 minutes. I did anticipate "Paula Deen Rich", but I would have made the glaze a tad less sweet. The girls all enjoyed them, and asked for the recipe. They were easy to fix. I spooned the glaze over the muffin, after the first 2 I tried to dip - crumbled in my fingers. Thanks for posting, Sharlene~W.
My children's favorite cupcakes.
These are a treat! They have great lemon flavor. These would be a wonderful addition to a cookie tray. I used a small cookie scoop and that was the perfect amount for the mini muffin tin. Differnt and delightful! Thanks for posting...
These are wonderful. They are like eating a glazed lemon donut! So glad I tried this recipe!
We made these as directed. They were good. However, they were not what we expected. I expected something much more exceptional. They were a little dry and we didn't like the glaze.
I couldn't tell you how many times I have made these and everyone loves them. I like making them with orange cake mix, using orange juice, my family is especially fond of the pineapple ones I make using pineapple cake mix and the juice from crushed pineapple. I always add the zest to the wonderful glaze..I think the oil in the galze is what sets this recipe apart!! Thanks for posting.
