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.

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.

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!!
