Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I made these for my cute friend Lindsey’s bridal shower last Saturday.  They turned out cute and delicious.


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 fresh lemon juice

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

2 eggs

2 – 4 teaspoons poppy seeds


1 teaspoon melted butter

powdered sugar, as much as needed

4 teaspoons lemon juice

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Line muffin pans with paper liners.

2  Whisk first 4 dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.

3  Whisk sour cream, buttermilk and lemon juice together in a small bowl.

4  Beat sugar, butter and lemon zest on low until well combined.  Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in dry ingredients in 3 additions alternating with sour cream mixture in 2 additions.  Mix just until blended.  Stir in poppy seeds and scoop into liners.

5  Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 -22 minutes.  Cool in pans 5 minutes then remove to cool completely.

6  Mix together glaze ingredients to desired consistency and drizzle over cooled muffins.

Yield: 24 regular size muffins
