A nice light lemon flavoured muffin that is good to have for morning or afternoon tea, or, as a dessert served with some whipped cream and maybe some fresh berries.

Top Review by Folk Dancer

This is a wonderful light muffin, and it is very forgiving. When I made it I made two mistakes, one involving the melted butter and cold milk, the other was reading the temperature incorrectly. It didn't matter, I adjusted the temperature after cooking for 10 minutes, cooked it a little longer and it turned out fine. I will try this again with limes and also with oranges.
