Recipe by LorenLou

I got this from a B&B site....credit is given to the Benjamin Prescott Inn. Wonderful, refreshing muffins - good on their own or as part of a brunch menu. Cook time includes cooling time.

Liked the taste of lemon-lime. Will try again. The muffins deflated after cooling but were very tasty.
