Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Fresh lemon fills every bite of these vanilla muffins. The golden batter with tiny black freckles throughout, contains the warm, sweet flavor of vanilla, and is accented with a fresh burst of lemon. Enjoy these with a hot cup of tea.

    These are delicious! I substituted butter for palm oil shortening but that was it. Have a already become a favorite 🙂

    Yummy! Nothing but muffin paper “corpses” left everywhere 🙂 ( No more crime shows for me…:)

    Your instructions include lemon juice but your ingredients do not. Is this included? If so, how much?

    Absolutely delicious! They’re pretty oily though… I made the first batch with coconut oil (I didn’t have the palm oil shortening), the second batch with 1/4 C coconut oil, the 3rd batch as-written, and the 4th batch with 1/4 C shortening. The most successful batch was the second one. I’m going to try again with 2 Tbs shortening, but I may just stick with the coconut oil after that.

    But like I said… so yummy, as evidenced by the 4 batches I’ve already made.

      Hi – Another thing that you may consider doing is using mini muffin trays rather than regular-sized muffins. Since mini muffins don’t hold as must moisture, they almost always turn out great! -Kara
