Lemon Crumb Muffin

This cake-like muffin has a delicate lemon flavor with a sweet crumb topping. The batter freezes well. Just freeze in the muffin tin, pop out when frozen and store in an airtight container. Select the number of frozen muffins you would like to bake; place frozen muffins into greased muffin tin. Bake frozen muffins at 350 degrees for just a couple minutes longer than the unfrozen batter.
