READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Becca- B

I found this recipe in a book called " Great coffee cakes, sticky buns, muffins & more", and I didn't want to loose it . I was looking for a great scratch recipe for these muffins and this one fits the bill.

I was looking for a good from scratch lemon muffin too, and this is what I found, and it was delicious!!! Lovely lemon flavour. Just don't do what I did: I decided that I wanted them to be really yellow, like at the bakery (I don't know why). Well, I was a little heavy handed with the food dye and had atomic yellow lemon muffins! lol I will be making these again and again, just without the food dye....
