Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins –Simple and easy recipe for bright and sunny breakfast or brunch- moist, lemon infused muffins made with Greek yogurt. Slight crunch from poppy seeds makes really interesting twist on the classic, plain lemon muffins. Being soft and crunchy at the same time, these Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are a win-win situation, if you ask me.
Notwithstanding that good, bakery style chocolate chip muffin and a blueberry muffin with a bunch of streusel crumb topping are always my first choice , these Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are really amazing springtime breakfast .
This recipe uses butter and Greek yogurt and no oil and that’s what makes these Lemon Poppy Seeds Muffins deliciously moist and soft at the same time. They have more of a cake-like crumb with light and fluffy texture. Freshly squeezed lemon juice and grated lemon zest are mixed in the batter, so these delicious muffins simply bursting with fresh citrus flavor.
They are drizzled with the mixture of powdered sugar and lemon juice. You can leave the glaze off, but it adds a little extra lemon flavor. I like the muffins with the glaze more. If there is no streusel crumbs, the sweet and tangy glaze is the best part about muffins( at least for me ).
These are easy to make. There’s nothing fancy about them. Just mix a few basic ingredients to make a delicious breakfast.
These springtime, citrus-infused Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are breakfast at its best, for a lemon lover, of course.
