MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2013

These came out great as far as being fluffy. Even after adding Lemon Yogurt (instead of sour cream) and extra zest they still weren't as lemony as I expected. So I spread lemon curd on them. I will make these again and add more lemon juice.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 28, 2012

I made this recipe as a loaf bread and it was delicious. I did make some substitutions, but still it came out moist and delicious. The first thing I realized was I didn't have any lemon extract on hand, so I just used more lemon juice and lemon zest. Also, I substituted organic plain yogurt for the sour cream. I put the mixture in a greased clay bread cooker and cooked it for 55 minutes. My family loved it and I will definitely be making it again. Next time I plan to have the extract! Thanks so much for sharing this delightful recipe.

This muffins are just what I was looking for! They turn out fluffy and moist with just the right amount of lemon flavor. I don't have a jumbo muffin pan so I ended up with 18 standard size muffins and baked for 12 minutes. I will be making this recipe again and again!
