Recipe by Jeronimo

Little Gems of yummy-ness. Next time I make these, I will probably add some additional lemon and sugar, as I like a strong lemon flavor.

This a good recipe but it does need more lemon flavor! I used 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and the zest of 1 lemon but would suggest adding the zest of 2 lemons and using fresh squeezed lemon juice which seems to be more potent. The muffins were a good consistency and the sugar on top was just right.
