Lime Muffins

I bake muffins every Sunday morning, so I'm always trying different ingredients to make them interesting. These citrus muffins are my husband's favorite.

    I loved these! I agree they needed a little something on top. I made a glaze with 2 Tbsp lime juice and 1 cup powdered sugar and drizzled it on top! They were superb! I will make them again!

    These were pretty good, but I added a lime juice/powedered sugar glaze to them for more lime flavor.

    I used lime juice and orange zest for a nice citrus combination. The batter is thick, but the muffins come out moist enough.
