Crumb Topped Lemon Muffins Recipe

A lemon muffin with bright lemon flavor and a delicious crumb topping is pretty much the best way to start any day.

I knew I wanted to make some lemon muffins for the Ultimate Lemonade Stand, but I didn't have a go-to lemon muffin recipe, so I decided to adapt my favorite lemon quick bread recipe.

Delicious Homemade Sprinkles Tutorial

I've seen homemade sprinkles before, but the only ones I've seen have been made with royal icing, piped into lines, and then broken into smaller pieces.  It's cute, but not quite what I wanted to create for my homemade sprinkle experiment.  I wanted something more regular, and also with a more distinct flavor.  It also sounded rather tedious to make the royal icing version.

Crumb Topped Zucchini Bread Recipe

Quick breads are easy to make (no yeast!  no fuss!) and so delicious, and one of my very favorites is zucchini bread.  I'm not a big fan of zucchini generally, but when you grate it and bake it in a sweet quick bread, it's absolutely magical.

You pretty much can't go wrong with zucchini bread of any variety, but I decided to jazz up my favorite recipe by adding a crumb topping.  Spoiler alert: it was a great idea.
