      I also thought the batter was too thin but they turned out awesome. They were a little on the small side for what I think of "cupcakes"- the batter filled each muffin slot to about 1/2 way (a little more then 2 TBSP each). When cooked they didn't even rise up to the top of the muffin tin... so they are kind of a cross between a mini-muffin and a normal muffin which I actually found perfect for little hands! I didn't find these absurdly sweet either, which is a problem I find with most cupcakes. Delicious! Even my super picky boy gobbled these up! Thanks for sharing!

      Lemon, poppy seed and low fat - how could I not give these a try! Happy I did as they are very good. The glaze is wonderful - have a copy close at hand in my recipe drawer for times when I am wanting a lemon glaze - looks and tastes great and that's a good combination!
