Another moist and flavorful muffin favorite. I have many macadamia nut recipes that I whip out at Christmas time. This one is a keeper.

Maybe I cooked the muffins a little bit too much. Next time I'll check them after 15 minutes. I really liked the taste of cardamom and the lemon peel. I think that these muffins taste like doughnuts. Really good. Thanks V :)

*Reviewed for Zaar World Tour 3* These were great muffins. Very simple to make and tasted fantastic. Loved the addition of the madadamias. Good for all year round, not just christmas!
