Lemon Cornmeal Muffins

Lemon Cornmeal Muffins

Continuing with my success from the lemon snowflakes, I decided to try some muffins from a new cookbook, called Huckleberry. What a fun name. The ingredients were a little different so I thought I would give them a try when Taylor wanted to take a breakfast treat to some friends that were working the day after Christmas.lemon muffins

I’ve never added ricotta cheese to a muffin, but it makes these so moist, almost like cheesecake. The lemon flavor was even better the second day as the lemon juice from the glaze soaked in. I will be trying more recipes from this cookbook as these were amazing.
