    candaceshaw's Note:

    I found this recipe somewhere a few years ago; it's pretty much my favourite muffin recipe. Besides being relatively low calorie (especially when compared to anything you're going to buy in a cafe), it's absolutely delicious! I'll warn you that it's not a super-sweet muffin, and that the cranberries are the real stars - I usually add more than the recipe calls for. Without the lemon zest, these lose their great texture, so don't leave it out.

      Since we do love lemons (not to mention the cranberries, as well!) I took Mikekey's suggestion & upped the amount of lemon zest to a full tablespoon AND added a bit of lemon extract as well! Lemon & cranberry make a very satisfying combo, & these muffins were wonderfully satisfying! Many thanks for sharing this great recipe!

      These have a nice, chewy texture and are not too sweet, but need more lemon flavor. I will try more zest and perhaps some lemon extract next time. Made for Spring 2008 PAC.

      I used maple syrup. And didn't change the amount of lemon zest. But after reading the reviews now I wish I had use more lemon zest. Because it's true that the muffins didn't taste a lot of lemon. But overall they were great. The texture was perfect. Thanks candaceshaw :) Made for Cookbook tag game
