Tuesdays with Dorie: Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

lemon poppy seed muffins

I made these muffins– oh, wow– more than a year ago, and have been waiting patently for someone, like Betsy of A Cup of Sweetness, to choose them for TWD.  Lemons and poppy seeds are one of the classic combos of the muffin world, and for good reason.  Who wouldn’t want to wake up to a cup of coffee and a little lemon cake?  In addition to super-cuteness, poppy seeds give a little crunch.  Dorie’s recipe has a lemon glaze that is sweet and puckery at the same time…and I was generous with it.  I have the world’s biggest jar of poppy seeds (seriously, it’s like PB jar sized!), so I’ll make these again, and when I do, I’m going to try the jam-filled variation.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read A Cup of Sweetness.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!
