Lemon-Cranberry Muffins

35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
10 ingredients

I made these for my Dad for Father's Day this year. The recipe comes from Allrecipes.com. They're good, but I think mine need a little something extra. The recipe calls for lemon-extract, but I didn't have any, so instead I used the zest of one lemon, plus the juice from half. Still a little lacking in lemon flavour, so I think I'll make a lemon glaze to brush on top before I give them to him! I also omitted the almonds, as I was trying to make them as close to the muffins he buys on the road as I could! Not overly sweet.
