TWD—Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Thanks to Betsy of A Cup of Sweetness who chose our recipe for Tuesdays With Dorie this week.  She chose Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins (page 10) and she’ll have the recipe for these simple and tasty muffins on her blog.

I’m always so proud of myself when I actually follow a recipe just as it is written.  And I did for this one!  Yay me. ;)  These muffins turned out great and I think Kevin ate most of them (that’s always a plus!), well besides we had some company spend the weekend and they ate a good share of them, too. 

TWD--Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins 1-15-11

I didn’t realize when I started making the muffins that they have sour cream.  I had about 2/3 cup of light sour cream and was lucky enough that I had the exact amount of Greek yogurt left to make the 3/4 cup.

These muffins are nice and moist and perfectly lemony enough and the glaze on top (I dipped them, instead of drizzled them) adds a perfect amount of sweetness.   You’ll want to make these.  I think they’d still be great also if you didn’t have poppy seeds.  Filled with jam?  There are many possibilities.  Nice pick, Betsy!  Check out the other TWD bakers Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins.

Oh Katrina, Love the way the glaze is dripping off those muffins in the top picture. Makes me want to take my finger and run it around the edges to get a taste.

Ahh that drippy glaze!! I can just imagine eating these muffins, they look that good! Sure wish we got poppy seeds here, we get white ones, but they don't look half as awesome :(

The muffins look great. Generally I'm not a muffin fan, but I'd break my non-habit for one of these.

Jessica said...

Very pretty! I love those wrappers! I'm glad you liked these as much as I did!

Those are just the most appealing muffins.

Lisa said...

I have no doubt that these muffins were good with all their lemony flavor. I always think the glaze is the best part so I love that you dipped them.

Jessica of My Baking Heart said...

LOVE that glaze on yours - so yummy! :)

Megan said...

These look so tasty. My daughter would love these if I used almond instead of lemon. Hmmm, I gotta go see if I have any sour cream and poppy seeds! :)

I kind of like them without the poppy seeds.

Just a lovely citrus muffin

Karen said...

I will have to try out dipping them next time in the glaze! :) They look delicious!

this falor combo is one of my weaknesses....

Caroline said...

These looks so good. I always thought I was being so daring eating poppy seeds as a kid because of the lore of it looking like opiates on a drug test. Now I realize I just love the combination of lemon and poppyseed!

Nutmeg Nanny said...

The glaze is killing me! I just want to pull the top off that muffin and devour it...hehe.

Mimi said...

Of course your muffins look irresistible with that glaze dripping off the edge. It was such fun catching up on your blog. A lot of recipes to bookmark. Your puppy is so cute and Sam is adorable as always.
