Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Last night the Young Women from church came over to my house and we had a Personal Progress activity (Personal Progress is a goal setting program for the girls).  My friend Pam and I work together in YW so we called it “Pam and PJ’s Personal Progress Party” and it was all about the letter P, just like on Sesame Street.  We wore clothes that started with P and did Personal Progress activities and ate foods that started with P, hence the Poppy Seed muffins in Pink liners with Polka dot straws!  This recipe comes from the “Lil’ Luna” blog and they were pretty good.


2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1 tablespoon lemon zest

2 eggs

2 teaspoons poppy seeds


1 tablespoon melted butter

2 – 3 tablespoons milk

1 cup powdered sugar

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda and whisk together.

3  In another bowl, whisk together sour cream, buttermilk and lemon juice.

4  In your mixer bowl, beat sugar, 1/2 cup butter and lemon zest.  Add eggs and beat until fluffy.  Add dry ingredients and mix then add sour cream mixture and mix until well combined.

5  Stir in poppy seeds.

6  Scoop batter into cupcake liners in muffin pan.  Bake 20 minutes (mine took almost 30) and let cool.

7  For glaze, mix together melted butter, milk and powdered sugar.  Drizzle over muffins.
