I typically love Taste of Home recipes, their banana muffin is to die for! These muffins are super bland. I doubled the lemon extract and added 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and no lemon flavor at all. I'm an experienced baker and I'm not sure what is going wrong with this recipe. Maybe fresh lemon zest? I had to throw the whole batch out, 48 mini muffins! I bummed I wasted the sour cream and cute muffin liners.

These are nice little muffins although like others say you can't taste the lemon even with doubling it, might try tripling next time. Also not very sweet, probably would double sugar next time. And yes probably 8-10 mins cooking time max.

I recommend to double the lemon extract and decrease baking time to 10-11 minutes.

These were really yummy. I doubled the lemon extract, and it was still a bit mild to my taste so I will add more next time.

Very tasty, though I only get 2 dozen mini muffins or 9 regular muffins with this recipe.

I have made this recipe for years and years. It is sooo yummy. I sometimes substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream and it turns out just fine. I also like to add a little more lemon extract.
