This is an easy recipe to follow, but I had to change it to get a lemon tasting muffin. When I did exactly what the recipe called for, the batter turned out more like a dough - very sticky and when they came out of the oven they were dark and tasted like plain. I added a 1/4 cup more milk, 1/2 cup applesauce, 2 tablespoons more sugar, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon less baking powder. I also went ahead and zested the whole lemon. I still think the lemon taste isn't strong enough, and my taste testers agree. When following the original recipe, you will see that the wet ingredients are not enough for the dry. My additions made the muffins moist and sweet. I just need to tweak the lemon flavor and they will be perfect.
