For the lemon glaze:


To make the lemon poppy seed muffins:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, and line a muffin pan with papers. 
  • Place the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest in a large mixing bowl, and whisk to combine. 
  • Melt the butter in a large liquid measuring cup, and whisk together with the Greek yogurt, milk, eggs, lemon juice, and lemon extract. 
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry, and fold together until just barely combined (batter will be very thick). 
  • Divide the batter equally between all 12 wells of the muffin pan. 
  • Bake the muffins for 5 minutes at 425 degrees F, then turn the oven temperature down to 350 degrees F and continue to bake for 14 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the thickest part of a muffin comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  • Drizzle with lemon glaze and serve. 

To make the lemon glaze:

  • Place the powdered sugar in a medium bowl, and stir in the lemon juice, a little at a time, until the desired consistency is achieved. 



*Sour cream may be substituted.
