grated lemon zest
this recipe is tasty and easy a few suggestions though I grated all of the zest off of a whole lemon and added the juice from the lemon aswell I also added more milk I found the batter to thick, once I had the batter in the muffin trays sprinkled zest on the tops this made these muffins sweet and wonderfully lemony. My husband says they are to die for lol I have to say I agree.
This is a good basic muffin mix but it is too dry and definitely not lemony enough. I suggest adding 1 Tbs of fresh lemon juice to the batter and then glazing the muffins with a mixture of lemon juice and powdered sugar while they are hot. Poking the tops of the muffins with a fork first will allow the glaze to soak in better.
Great recipe. I added more lemon zest and 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Baked them only 15 minutes instead of 20. They came out moist and delicious!!
Based on suggestions of the other reviewers, I modified this recipe a bit. I added the zest of 2 lemons to the batter as well as the juice of one of the lemons. I also substituted the oil for unsweetened applesauce and replaced the white sugar with an equal amount of Splenda. Lastly, I added about 1 cup of blueberries to the batter just before baking. The flavour of the muffins wasn't bad, and certainly not overly lemony...but the end result was a very chewy muffin that stuck to the paper liner. Not a bad start - but this recipe still requires more tweaking in my opinion.
My first reaction to these muffins- Bisquick! They resemble Bisquick bicuits in taste and texture. The lemon flavor is very faint. I followed other reviewers advice and made a lemon glaze that I added as soon as they came out of the oven. The glaze helped immensely. I think next time I make these muffins I will add another Tbsp lemon zest and cut back on the baking powder.
Great recipe!!! Do get them extra fluffy and soft, I sifted the flour twice and instead of vegetable oil I used 80gr melted butter. Thanks for sharing!!
I am 7 years old and my family and I really liked this recipe.
We added 1 tsp vanilla extract, lemon juice and lemon zest from a lemon. I would recommend this to anyone who loves baking, but advise them to make the same changes, it makes a difference.
This is a very easy recipe to follow and turns out nicely with a cake-like texture. The entire family likes them and I can't keep them in the pantry. If you like a little more lemon flavor, just put on a glaze of lemon juice and sugar and put in some more lemon zest.
