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

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.

These muffins did not turn out as well as I had hoped .. They taste ok but they were difficult to remove from the paper cups, and were somewhat lacking in flavor .. I would make this again but only after some changes .. Thank you

These muffins tasted great, but I had to add almost a whole cup of milk because it was way too thick. 1 cup of flour is definately sufficient, not 2. So I think that should be changed, but after the milk, it tasted pretty good. Maybe a bit oily. :)
