MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2014

Prior reviews were right on - needs more lemon (the flavor is not very pronounced.) These have a good, light texture without being cake-like. Recipe makes a full muffin, so if using a shallow tin, you will easily get more than a dozen. And yes, a little drizzled powder sugar glaze would compliment these quite well to offset the tartness of cranberries. Really a nice recipe.

Good as is, but I'm a big lemon fan, so if you want more zing, add more lemon extract or zest.

I just made these muffins for my co-workers & they raved about them. I just bought a new stove so I took them out at 12 ms. I made them again & they burnt on the bottom. Will bake them again but at 350 degrees. I think 400 is too high!!!

Great, very light, extra tasty with two of my favorites: lemon and cranberry. Next time, I think I'll sprinkle the tops with sugar prior to baking for a little extra sweetness to offset the tartness of the cranberries. The recipe made 16 big muffins for me.

DELICIOUS!!! I added a bit more of the lemon extract and some lemon zest, just to make it extra lemony.
