Reviews for Lemon Ginger Muffins
"I found them very good, but chose to cut the ginger down significantly as that seemed like a lot of ginger. Also due to dietary restrictions had to use all splenda. While I find the flavor delicious and them to be a decent muffin, they stuck about half in the muffin paper, and made them useless to serve to others, because it was necessary to have two per serving rather than one. I'm not sure what I could have done differently to prevent this."
"Needs salt! These were tasteless and dense muffins, and we won't make these muffins again."
