Reviews for Glazed Lemon Muffins
"Very lemoney and delicious, however it made way more then the recipe says. I used regular sized muffin tins.. two. I still had enough to make six more plus one dozen mini muffins..The struesle topping is way too much. I saved the rest in the frig. for another time.I didn't make the glaze. I didn't feel it needed it with the struesle topping.. All in all, the were wonderful tasteing."
"These are delicious! My toddlers & husband devoured them. I halved the recipe & used a mini muffin tin - and the batter made 48 mini muffins. I only made 1/3 of the crumb topping, and that was more than enough. I also substituted 6 oz of fairly thick strawberry yogurt instead of the sour cream. Like I said - delicious!"
"My family absolutely loves these moist, lemony muffins -- they are my 15 year old son's favorite Sunday morning breakfast."
