Luscious Lemon Muffins Recipe

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
