These muffins have a subtle lemon flavor. The glaze is a little more lemony and what makes these taste so good, imho.

Top Review by teapotter

I was looking for a lemon muffin using oil since family needs to avoid saturated fats. After looking at the other reviews I added 2 tbsp sugar and an additional tsp of lemon zest to boost flavour a bit. Like another reviewer I found the batter too thick to even stir and ended up adding 1/4 cup lemon juice and then enough milk to make a stirrable batter, I didn't measure so not sure how much milk I added but guestimate about 1/2 cup. I made the drizzle thinner with additional lemon juice. I sprayed my pan, didn't use paper liners and had no trouble getting them out of the pan. I got 12 large muffins and my guys enjoyed them but since I made so many adjustments to the original recipe I can only offer 3 stars for this one. I will make them again using the adjustments I made the first time.
