Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins


What You Will Need:

2/3 cup sugar
1 lemon (grated for lemon zest)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cups flour
2 tsps. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsps. vanilla
1/2 cup butter (one stick), melted
2 tbsp. poppy seeds

Making the muffins:

In a large bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In another bowl whisk the sugar, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, lemon zest, lemon juice and melted butter together until well blended.  Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently fold the two together.  Don't worry about a few lumps.  Stir in the poppy seeds.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown.  Immediately move the muffins to your serving platter and glaze the muffins.

Glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Whisk all together until smooth.  If the glaze is too runny add more powdered sugar.  Glaze the muffins while they are still warm.

These melt in your mouth!
