      I didn't use lemon extract, I put more fresh lemon juice. And I put the zest of one lemon. I reduced the sugar to about 3/4 cup. These cupcakes have a nice taste of lemon. I got only 10 muffins. Thanks Redsie :) Made for Zaar Star Game.

      I've made this recipe both single and doubled (for two layer cakes). Both times I used grapeseed oil instead of margarine. Both times I didn't use lemon extract. The second time I substituted half of the oil with home-made applesauce. All variations of this recipe are delicious. It's a bit dense as a cake, as originally written, but makes light fluffy muffins. Delicious.

      These are moist and scumptious! Wonderful lemon flavor. I iced them with a tradional buttercream icing and the 2nd time, left them plain. If you like lemon, you will like these! Also- be sure to buy a quality yogurt.
