Fresh lemon fills every bite of these vanilla muffins. The golden batter with tiny black freckles throughout, contains the warm, sweet flavor of vanilla, and is accented with a fresh burst of lemon. Enjoy these with a hot cup of tea.

These are delicious! I substituted butter for palm oil shortening but that was it. Have a already become a favorite 🙂
Yummy! Nothing but muffin paper “corpses” left everywhere 🙂 ( No more crime shows for me…:)
Your instructions include lemon juice but your ingredients do not. Is this included? If so, how much?
Absolutely delicious! They’re pretty oily though… I made the first batch with coconut oil (I didn’t have the palm oil shortening), the second batch with 1/4 C coconut oil, the 3rd batch as-written, and the 4th batch with 1/4 C shortening. The most successful batch was the second one. I’m going to try again with 2 Tbs shortening, but I may just stick with the coconut oil after that.
But like I said… so yummy, as evidenced by the 4 batches I’ve already made.
Hi – Another thing that you may consider doing is using mini muffin trays rather than regular-sized muffins. Since mini muffins don’t hold as must moisture, they almost always turn out great! -Kara
