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! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
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
