Made these when my mom was visiting and we all liked them. They are not too sweet and were easy to make. Thank you!
The muffins had a rubbery texture inside and out, which spoiled the very nice lemon taste (love the ingredients in this recipe). Is it because I used a non-stick muffin pan (even though I did grease it with butter)? Also, the directions on the syrup were confusing, the ingredients list called for peeled and chopped lemon rind whereas the recipe for the syrup called for grated rind. I zested a half-lemon, which seemed to work ok, though the syrup was a bit more tart than I expected. Overall, this didn't work for me. Thanks.
I thought these were really good warm, but they were a little too hard cold. Better after a quick trip through the microwave. I did not have lemons so used clementines for an orange flavor. Great flavor. Used Fage 0% yogurt which I think makes them practically fat free and probably decreases the calories too. Made 15 muffins. Less than 20 minutes but I forgot to set the timer. No trouble getting out of Pam'd muffin pan. Made for 2012 February Sun and Spice.
The lemon bits are nice and these look very pretty with the glaze and browned tops, and have all the right ingredients, but maybe not in the right proportions? The texture is a bit off (or maybe it is because they have no added fat). The batter is super thick and they are also quite hard to get out of even a silicone muffin pan. Definitely use the glaze, plus top them with some Light Smart Balance and lemon curd to enhance the flavors.
Delicious and so lemon-y! Only a slight mistake / change - we added the lemon zest right into the muffins and while they were baking, realized that was supposed to be for the glaze. One thing I would not recommend - we used paper muffin liners and the muffins stuck to them horribly.
I turned these into 6 jumbo muffins and the family ended up having them for a after dinner snack instead of for breakfast. Are they ever filling!!! No butter or oil - just incredible! I used 1/3 cup of sugar which was just fine. All in all a very good for you breakfast which can be taken on the road. Made for ZWT 7 - Food.Commandoes
Very tasty. I used about a 1/3 cup sugar and that was plenty. Instead of the lemon glaze I made a lemon butter (lemon juice, honey and butter) which was perfect.
I used non-fat yogurt and made exactly as described, but 6 jumbo muffins for 25 minutes and turned out perfectly. Awesome recipe for any moment of the day (specially breakfast) :-) Thanks!!!
I had some yogurt to use up so decided to give these a try. These are very good muffin and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.
I used only 1/4 cup sugar. They have a great taste, not too sweet. I love the lemon taste. I baked them at 400 F for 20 minutes. But I think that was too much. They're a bit dry. So next time I'll try at 350 F between 20-25 minutes. Thanks Susie :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
