It was a pretty simple recipe to make and it was really yummy as well. I really recommend this recipe. The texture was my favorite part of these muffins and I love the little crunch from the poppy seeds.
Instructions for lemon poppy recipe
Preheat oven at 375
1. Start by creaming your butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer till light and fluffy.
2. Add eggs one at a time until incorporated, add in lemon zest and then fold in sour cream.
3. In another medium-sized bowl sift flour, baking powder and salt sit aside.
4. Next stir in poppy seeds, lemon juice and milk to wet ingredients.
5. Finally add dry ingredients a little at a time until all ingredients are incorporated.
Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown and a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
Makes 16-18 regular sized muffins
*notes: These muffins do not have a very strong lemon flavor. If you want a strong lemon flavor then add more zest and lemon juice. If you like really strong lemon flavors you could possibly add zest and juice of 2 lemons and I do not think it would change recipe. I used a smaller size lemon.
