Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins with a Lemon Glaze – better than anything at the bakery, these homemade lemon poppy seed muffins are sure to brighten your day!
Craving Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
My carb cravings are still going strong. Last week I made Whole Wheat Banana Muffins and they really hit the spot. I ate the entire dozen. Ok, maybe I shared with Caleb, but I tried to hide them so he wouldn’t ask for more. I know, I am a selfish mom, but the muffins were SO good!
This week Josh asked me if he could make me breakfast. All I could think about were muffins. Josh asked if he could make our favorite Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and I loved the idea. The recipe comes from my favorite cookbook, Baking: From My Home To Yours, by the fabulous Dorie Greenspan. We started making these muffins when were dating and we are still making them today.
Fresh Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins
These lemon poppy seed muffins are perfection! We’ve probably made them a hundred times and every time I bite into one I fall in love all over again!
There is fresh lemon juice and lemon zest in the muffin batter, which I think makes a big difference. The poppy seed muffins also get drizzled with a sweet lemon glaze, enhancing that lemon flavor. These muffins are lemonlicious!
I also love the slight texture the poppy seeds add. You can find poppy seeds at almost every grocery store, look by the spices.
Dorie uses sour cream in this muffin recipe, but Josh used Greek yogurt since our fridge is full of it. Both ingredients work well so use your favorite!
Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are sure to brighten your day! They certainly made my day! I ate one for breakfast…and one for a mid-morning snack…and one for dessert later that night. They taste good any time of the day! Make a batch this weekend, you will not be disappointed!
