Lemon Poppyseed Mini Muffins

What happens when the blueberry muffins that you baked a few days ago run out?  Lemon poppyseed muffins happen.  At least they did yesterday afternoon.  I love having a freshly baked pastry for breakfast everyday, and as long as you freeze them, muffins generally stay nice and fresh.

Lemon poppyseed is probably my favorite flavor of muffin ever.  Actually though, I have a hard time choosing any other option when lemon poppyseed is available.  However, I rarely make them.  Not sure why.  So when I discovered that we had poppyseed AND lemon in the house I couldn't resist giving these a go.

I adapted Joy the Baker's recipe by changing the size to mini muffins and the baking time to 9 minutes. I also used vanilla yogurt instead of buttermilk/sour cream.  I'm not sure if it was the flavor of the yogurt, but I kind of lost the lemon in these muffins.  Next time I would double the juice and zest.  Or maybe my lemon was just too wimpy.



  1. Loved these. I love lemon flavour in my desserts. Want to try this. I am your new follower now!!

  2. I also bakes those and published them on my blog a few weeks ago ! What a coincidence !
