Any kind of lemon muffins are my absolute favorite. I did add poppy seeds to this recipe which may have changed some of the flavor... but over all I wasn't too impressed with it. I could hardly taste the lemon in the muffin itself. Next time I'm definitely adding lemon zest and probably some extract as well.

Great recipe!!!! I added the lemon peel to the batter. I have substituted the white flour with a whole wheat and added extra 1/2 cup of milk..yummy!
