Reviews forLemon Crumb Muffins
"These are excellent muffins and great for a morning snack. I was able to use fresh lemons from our tree and I did not make any changes to the recipe."
"This recipe is so amazing. I prefer to say it is a lemon cake because it is such a treat! I substituted the sour cream with vanilla yogurt. (only because I didn't have sour cream) FABULOUS! I would suggest that if you are only making muffins for your family to half the recipe. Love the muffins, will definitely be in my book of greatness!"
"These are definitely my Sunday "go to" breakfast. The combination of sweet and lemony is just perfect."
"Yum!!! I enjoy lemon once in a while and these muffins hit the spot. I think my favorite part was the streusel topping with the glaze."
"These were delicious and easy to make! Next time, I may add a little lemon extract to boost the lemon flavor."
"I made half , turned out easy and look cute, I like it !"
"i just really wanted to let everybody know that I followed this recipe down to the last teaspoon. And let me just say, waaayy too many eggs! my whole kitchen smelled like eggs and the muffins were not good at all. I would say reduce eggs down to 6 or maybe 5. I was hoping for a yummy moist lemon muffin but instead I got an eggy, smelly gooey mess. very dissapointed."
"I liked the topping, very delicious."
"The recipe was great but instead of sour cream I used lemon curd....I didn't make the topping but I will do next time...."
"I also scaled down the recipe to make 10 muffins. Next time I may add a little lemon extract to the batter and some grated lemon zest to the glaze to make them a bit more lemony. All in all, these are very good muffins."
