Blackberry Lemon Muffins

These tender muffins are bursting with flavor, and they remind me of spring. Garnish with grated lemon peel for added color and even more punch from the lemon. —Vicky Palmer, Albuquerque, New Mexico

    Used orange instead of lemon and whole milk instead of fat free. They disappeared quickly!

    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!
