The glaze soaks up pretty quickly in the muffins – so it won’t look like a frosting.  But when you taste it, the top will have that amazing sweet and tart lemony glaze that makes each muffin bite just perfect!

You can see here that I put just a little bit extra glaze on this muffin.  I mean really – can you have too much glaze??  🙂
