These are one of my daughter's favorite muffins, not only to make but eat as a little girl. Now that she is grown and has a family of her own, she loves to make these muffins.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A sweetly tart pick-me-up perfect for brunch, breakfast, or afternoon tea. These lemon muffins are moist and tender. We love that lemonade concentrate is used because it is sweet and gives this fantastic muffin great lemon flavor. Brushing the tops with lemonade just adds to the flavor and sweetness.
