For those who like a bit more of a citrus punch, try adding a glaze on top made from confectioners’ sugar and extra lemon juice. For a festive twist during the holidays, mix in a handful of dried cranberries or blueberries to the batter. If you’re catering to nut lovers, a sprinkle of crushed walnuts or pecans can be a delightful addition.
