Recipe: Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

This is a yummy recipe that is quite simple to make!  I rarely use poppy seeds when baking but they just go with lemon…anything!  Wow that looks like a lot of butter on that muffin!  Don’t worry I removed it after the photo and split it on the other muffin (so I guess it didn’t matter, as I ate both muffins:).



3/4 Cup Sugar

1/2 Cup of Melted Butter

2 Eggs

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

3 Tbsp Lemon Juice

2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

1 Tsp Baking Soda

1/2 Tsp Salt

1/2 Cup Milk

2 Tbsp Poppy Seeds



Preheat your oven to 350°.  Use either muffin liners or lightly oil or butter your muffin tins.

In a mixing bowl, cream together your butter and sugar. Then beat in your eggs, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.

Then add your flour, baking soda and salt into the bowl; mix well.

Next add your milk and mix throughly.  Fold in your poppy seeds until just mixed.

Fill each cup 3/4 full.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until just browned on top.


I adapted this recipe from The Prudent Homemaker.
