These tender muffins are bursting with flavor, and they remind me of spring. Garnish with grated lemon peel for added color and even more punch from the lemon. —Vicky Palmer, Albuquerque, New Mexico

"Any kind of lemon muffins are my absolute favorite. I did add poppy seeds to this recipe which may have changed some of the flavor... but over all I wasn't too impressed with it. I could hardly taste the lemon in the muffin itself. Next time I'm definitely adding lemon zest and probably some extract as well."

"shouldn't step one be to mix up the dry ingredients?

I followed the mixing instructions but did a different topping after baking....they are ok...."
