    Wow, this is like eating a cup of canola oil. It was all I could taste, I did use regular eggs as I didn't have any egg substitute but I ended up throwing the whole thing away. Too bad because the lemon and thyme sure made it sound super good but yuck.

    I liked this a lot. I think the lemon and thyme gave it a nice, fresh taste. Adding a tablespoon of butter at the end gave it a pleasant crunch on top. I would make again.

    I made this bread for a Mother's Day lunch. I felt the bread was too sweet. The next time I make it, I will use half the amount of sugar. Also, after reading the reviews stating the bread was dry, I added a tablespoon of buttermilk. The loaf came out moist. My loaf did not look anything like the picture. It was fairly flat. I did like the combination of the lemon and thyme. I would make again.

    This was fantastic! I did not have the problem of oily or metallic taste or dry and crumbly texture as experienced by other reviewers. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Loved the flavor combination of lemon, thyme and pine nuts and moist texture. My top did not get crunchy but the butter flavor came through. A refreshing summer quick bread that goes great with summer salads.

    This was horrible. Dry and crumbled everywhere. The fresh lemon juice combined with the raw egg, gave a metallic taste that made these muffins inedible. Threw them out! Will make again with lemon zest only and with a traditional Southern Cornbread recipe.

    I enjoyed this quick bread mainly because it's not banana or zucchini... I thought that the flavors of lemon, thyme and pine nuts went together surprisingly well and the cornmeal and butter glaze at the end gave it some crunch.

    Don't bother! I made the recipe exactly as written and would not make it again - the bread was dry and the combination of lemon and thyme tasted very strange.

    Wrote this recipe down a while ago and finally made it - though I only had fresh rosemary on hand - was great! Tossed it all in and hand mixed so was a bit flat. Made it a second time with the thyme, followed directions better and it was light, fluffed up, moist and oh so good. Shows how good sweet and savory together can be - especially with the rosemary. Will be a staple in my recipe file!

    The bread didn't rise at all...it was very dense and overly lemon. I might make it again with some adjustments to get it to rise more.
