I did make a few small changes to the Lola B's recipe. I hate to see anything to go waste so I zested the lemon into the batter before juicing it to use in the glaze. I used a large cookie scoop to fill my paper lined cups, it makes it so easy to divide the batter up evenly.
Mine baked in exactly 20 mins, but be sure not to overbake. I moved them to a wire rack to cool and before glazing them I popped a rimmed baking sheet under the rack to catch the excess. For the glaze I used 1 cup of powdered sugar and the juice of a large lemon. For us, that was plenty to cover all 12 muffins.
