Gloriously lemon-y. I would make again. I think I upped the lemon peel a bit; just kept grating till I had a nice pile!
This recipe is a weekend breakfast staple in my house and it is my favorite muffin recipe. I always use a 6 ounce lemon yougurt because I have never found an 8 ounce. I just add a little milk to make sure it's not too dry. I have never had a bad result. Absolutely love them!
I followed the recipe exactly the first time I made these muffins, but decided to make a couple of changes for the second round. The second time I omitted the coconut because I felt it was a distraction from the delicate batter. Also I made a simple syrup by boiling 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water, then added 1/3 cup lemon juice after it cooled for a fresher, more lemon-y glaze.
My eight year-old said, "These are amazing!!!" My six year-old said, "I wish I could have a thousand of these!" :)
These are the yummiest muffins I've ever tasted. I added about a cup of fresh blueberries and a bit more lemon Greek yogurt because the batter was dry. They are AMAZING!!!!!
