Nice, delicate flavor...a breeze to make. Just for variety, I poked some individually quick frozen wild blueberries into the batter of 6 of these muffins (if you don't thaw them before you use them, they won't turn your batter blue!). M&Mers

Pretty solid little muffin, I made it with grapeseed oil instead of butter, and sour milk instead of fresh milk. I also used the zest and juice of an entire lemon. The texture was good, the sweetness was good too, but I found the muffin kind of bland. Probably could do with at least the juice of a second lemon.
