    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    These are extra lemony because of the lemon glaze that is added after they come out of the oven. If you like lemon, you'll like these.

      I made these to take on our vacation with us and we loved them. They had a nice lemony flavor, they just can't be beat. Thank you for sharing with us.

      These are fantastic. I added a little extra lemon juice and made them another time with lime juice because I was out of lemons. Both times they were fabulous. The glaze adds that extra zing that makes them so wonderful.

      Very good muffins! I had wanted to make lemon poppy seed muffins for a while, but it took me some time to find a recipe that used actual lemon juice (instead of just extract or lemon pudding). When I found this one, I jumped on it. The muffins came out nice, and the glaze was delicious! However, I only gave them 4 stars because I feel that although the muffins were tasty, they could use a bit more lemon. I was a little disappointed when I bit into a muffin to find a deliciously lemony glaze paired with a rather lemon-flavorless muffin. So if you're considering skipping the glaze, please don't- it's what really "makes the muffin."
