"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."
