Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins II

Recipe by  

"Melt in your mouth lemony-goodness! These muffins are LEMONY, but delicious! If you prefer, use less lemon juice for the glaze and substitute equal amount of milk for glaze. Or, simply forgo the glaze but this really adds to the overall taste. Also, you may use 24 mini-muffin tins, bake only 10-12 minutes."

Having read some of the reviews prior to making these muffins, I increased the oil from 1/4 to 1/3 cup and I added a whole cup of non-fat lemon yogurt rather than just the 2/3 cup the recipe called for. I also used a little extra lemon zest and extract to increase the lemon flavor. They came out very moist and lemony. I will definitely make them this way again.

I found these muffins quite dry and not very flavourful. I will look for a different recipe next time.

These muffins come out really moist, but it's the glaze that really make it! I also made these with oranges in place of the lemon and they were delicious!!

Great muffin recipe! I omitted the glaze completely, and they were perfect! Thanks for the recipe!

Great recipe! These are good muffins and the glaze is what really makes them! You CANNOT leave the glaze out of the recipe! It totally gives it wonderful flavor!

This went very well with the Spinach and strawberry salad. A different Idea I cam up with that I will try. Make the lemon & poppy seed as a loaf cake. Serve slices, with the strawbwrries and salad dressin from the spinach and strawberry salad. Add a dollop of whipped cream and you have a fantastic dessert.

These were great! Very easy and fast to make. Gotta love that. I didn't have any yogurt on hand so I had to use sour milk instead. They came out a little doughy because of that, but still good. Next time I'll make sure to have yogurt and see if that was the problem (I'm sure it was).

This recipe is fantastic! I didn't have poppy seeds, so I made them without. Delicious! A definite keeper. I made 24 mini muffins in less than half an hour (start to finish).
