Luscious Lemon Muffins Recipe

I've had this recipe since my college days, when it was served in one of my foods classes. These tempting, light lemony muffins go well at a luncheon with chicken salad. Even our two middle-school-aged children love to munch on them. -Mary-Lynne Mason, Janesville, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2014

These lemon muffins were very good. Light and tasty. I cut back just a bit on the lemon juice and peel to suit our tastes.
