Lemon Muffins #MuffinMonday

I got two large lemons recently and hid them from a lemonade fate. I don't get lemons often because they only grow in a few areas of Jamaica and I don't live in those areas. I finally decided that I'd make  some muffins with them. 

My lemons were really sweet so these muffins didn't have much of a tang. But I still enjoyed them. This recipe was slightly adapted from Handle the Heat. She has an interesting method. She chills the muffin batter for at least an hour up to overnight and this should lead to a taller muffin. I don't think it worked for me. However, I'll try again soon as I like the idea of mixing a batter hours in advance.
