    very nice receipe! the lemon and rosemary are very good together, also I liked how it wasn't too sweet...very nice with a nob of butter . However, please note, that this receipe like other muffins, don not require much if the batter was too liquidy that means you stirred too much. Just mix enough to incorporate...leave a couple blobs of flour..makes muffins fluffy  -  16 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very nice, light and savoury. The flavours of the lemon, rosemary, milk and butter work very well together. A nice twist on regular muffins!  -  10 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I liked the taste of these, but the texture was not right. The batter was runny; there seemed to be too much liquid. I would love to see more reviews as I really think these could be good!  -  15 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
