Poppy Seed Muffins

SO happy to be back today to share a yummy recipe with you. We have been long time fans of all baked goods with poppy seeds. We’ve also loved lemon breads forever, so it just seemed natural to want to try out these Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins from Thibeault’s Table.

One of our favorite baked treats is the Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins from Paradise Bakery and we were so excited that we were able to find a recipe that was similar. These ones are more soft and not as dense but were so flavorful and addicting. You might not think adding poppy seeds would do much for a bread or muffin recipe, but they are the perfect addition because they add great flavor, which is why we’ve used them in other recipes (Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes and Almond Poppy Seed Bread).

How to make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Just like many muffin recipes, this version is simple. You combine the dry ingredients and then the wet and combine them to make a delicious batter. Then, bake and add the glaze. Here are the instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda in a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together sour cream, buttermilk, lemon juice and vanilla. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl beat sugar, 1 stick of butter and lemon zest. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add dry ingredients (from step 2). Add sour cream mixture, and mix until well combined.
  5. Stir in poppy seeds.
  6. Add liners to muffin pan and spoon mixture into each liner. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool.
  7. For glaze, mix together melted TB of butter, milk and powdered sugar. Add more powdered sugar if it is too runny or more milk if it’s too thick. Drizzle over muffins. ENJOY!

As noted in the instructions, you can add more milk for a more runny glaze or even use lemon juice if you want to make the glaze more lemon flavored. Either way, it’s truly the icing on the cake that makes it even more delicious. 😀

Easy Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin recipe

For an easier version, you can use Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Lemon Poppyseed Muffin & Bread Mix. I recently picked up a box from the grocery store and was pleasantly surprised in how easy it was, as well as how good they ended up. We even added some white chocolate chips to the batter which made the muffins even better!!

INGREDIENTS:

  • Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Lemon Poppyseed Muffin & Bread Mix
  • 2/3 cup Greek Yogurt or regular vanilla yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • Glaze Ingredients: 1 cup powdered sugar (sifted), 1 – 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, 3-5 tablespoons Milk

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 standard-size muffin cups with paper, or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the baking mix, yogurt, eggs, oil, and water stirring until it forms a batter. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. While muffins are baking, make glaze by mixing powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and milk in a small bowl. Mix well.
  6. While muffins are still warm dip tops into glaze and let cool on a rack or wax paper. Let set and ENJOY!
