    My family and I agree: these are not very good. Not sweet, too dense and just kind of flavourless.

    These are not your typical muffins, they are more of a corn bread texture. That is the texture I was looking for, so I was very happy. These muffins are very lemony but I have to agree with the other comments (that I did not read ahead of time) the baking powder taste is way too much. I love the texture and the lemon taste and if it was not followed by a strong baking powder taste these would have been great. I will not be making this recipe again.

    This was very bad. When I saw the tablespoon of baking powder, I wondered. These muffins tasted like baking powder. Perhaps the recipe is wrong.

    Made these exactly as directed, except I doubled the recipe. They turned out...doughy? I guess that's the word. They were dry and heavy. I glazed them which helped a little, but not much. All in all I rate these an epic fail. I hope it was just me, but I kind of hope it wasn't as I am not normally an abyssmal baker. Oh well.

    I can't give these any stars. Sorry but too much salt, not enough sugar and possibly too much baking powder. Shouldn't it be 1 teaspoon? I made these exactly as posted against my better judgement and no one in my family could eat them.
