Lemon Crumb Muffins

Lemon Crumb Muffins - these soft, delicious muffins are topped with crumbs and a delicious lemon glaze making them irresistible!

Ya know how taste buds change over the years? I hope you know what I’m talking about, because mine have definitely changed over the years. I used to be a lot more picky when I was younger, but I’m finally growing up and am more willing to try (and enjoy) other foods. As strange as it may sound, I never really enjoyed lemon-flavored recipes. Yup – I’d throw the yellow starburst and Skittles (just not worth it!) Pretty silly, I know, because I now love ALL lemon recipes. You may have noticed this new-found-love because I’ve posted numerous lemon treats over the years, and a new one is today’s recipe for Lemon Crumb Muffins.

We had first spotted this recipe on Taste of Home and knew we wanted to give it a try. It looked like it made a lot, so we halved the recipe and changed a few things including the glaze that goes on top. We love how they turned out, and they actually reminded us of Paradise Bakery’s Lemon Poppyseed Muffin. Have you had them before?? We’re thinking we will add poppyseeds to the batter next time for even more flavor.
