Loved them. I threw in a handful of blueberries too and they were lovely and lemony.
Excellent muffins! They are definitely light and lusciously lemon! I used the juice of a whole lemon as suggested by a reviewer and also made a powdered sugar glaze to pretty the tops. So moist and yummy! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.
This recipe was just OK for us. It lacked the lemon "zip" that we enjoy. I did like the way the they rose and were a healthier muffin than some we have tried. I would definitely need to add more lemon next time.
