  1. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder and Morton Lite Salt® Mixture. In separate medium bowl, combine milk, melted butter or margarine, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. Stir in dry ingredients, all at once, just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy). (See Tips)
  2. Grease bottoms only of 12 medium muffin cups, 2-1/2 x 1-1/4 inches. (See Tips) Divide batter among muffin cups. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. Immediately remove from pans. Spoon Lemon Glaze over warm muffin tops. Serve immediately with Apricot Butter. Lemon Glaze: Combine 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in small bowl.

  • TIPS
  • Use fresh poppy seeds; stale seeds can impart bitter flavor.
  • Do not over mix the batter.
  • Use shiny pans, which reflect heat, for golden, delicate and tender crusts on muffins.
  • Grease only the bottoms of muffin cups; muffins will then be nicely shaped and have no rim around the top edge.

I use the apricot butter on EVERYTHING... biscuits, pancakes, chicken fingers... MmmMmmMmm. The only thing I changed was the flour and sugar, substituted whole wheat bread flour and graham flour with a tablespoon of cornmeal for a crunch... and dark brown sugar rather than white. I also used soy milk rather than cow's... and added baking soda for more puffiness... and i only used one egg... and sea salt... and olive oil rather than butter... but other than that.. I didn't change a thing!!!! The lemon poppy seed /apricot combo is great. xoxo

I expected the muffins to be lemony and sweet. This was not the case. Also, the glaze was too thick and I had to add lots of lemon juice.
