Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Ever since I started this recipe blog, I've been daydreaming about the day I would find a lemon poppy seed recipe to make and share. I don't know what took me so long, but here it is finally. Make sure you don't skip the glaze at the end. It takes these good muffins to absolutely scrumptiously moist muffins.

The ingredients:
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/4 cups flour

1/2 tsp. salt

2/3 cup sugar

4 oz. cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup oil

1/2 cup milk

2 Tbs. lemon juice

1 Tbs. grated lemon peel

2 Tbs. poppy seeds


2 Tbs. lemon juice

2 Tbs. sugar

Sift baking powder, flour, sugar, poppy seeds, and salt together in a medium bowl. Cut cream cheese into 1/2 inch cubes. Add cream cheese and coat well in flour mixture (leave the cream cheese in chunks).
In separate bowl combine egg, oil, milk, lemon juice, and lemon peel.

Add dry mixture to the moist ingredients and stir just until combined (you'll still see some small cream cheese chunks--don't worry this is a good thing). Spoon batter into 12 prepared muffin tins. Bake 15-17 minutes at 375 ° or until muffins test done.

GLAZE: Combine lemon juice and sugar and brush onto hot muffins.

Thanks for the recipe! I love lemon poppy seed and have never had a recipe (just the box mixes).

Have you ever tried this recipe in a bundt pan? I wonder how it would turn out...
