      These are very good but they are cupcakes and NOT muffins. I won't make them for my kids again because of that, but they are good when cake is what you want. I added 1 tbsps of poppy seeds, and used whole wheat for a 1/4 of the flour, and pastry flour for another 1/4 to make things a bit 'healthier'. Didn't notice the whole wheat at all.

      I was really dissapointed with these muffins. They were very bland and I could not taste the lemon flavor at all. Also, they didn't rise like I expect muffins to. I did use whole wheat flour but I don't think that made a difference - I use it all the time and I have never had any problem with it so I think it was the recipe.

      This is a very good muffin. Lovely texture and flavor although I did expect them to rise and "dome" a little more considering all the leavening agents. I might try adding a tiny bit more flour to give them a little more body but don't want to destroy the "lightness". The lemon was just right and the recipe is definitely a keeper.
