Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins!

Yesterday was my little Sis' Birthday... she celebrated turning 24 years young!
(ahh, to be 24 again?!)

And as her sister I know that one of her favorite muffins is Lemon Poppy Seed!
And since she was coming over to watch my babes yesterday morning (she's also my Nanny!)
I thought she needed a batch of her favorite muffins to start her Birthday off right!

So, while the babes were fast asleep and Mr. Appleberry was fixin' our broken dryer... I did what I do best, what calms my soul most.... I baked!

So if you are in the mood or need a yummy muffin recipe to go to... this is a good one to have on hand!

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 Tbsp grated lemon zest
2 large eggs
2 tsp poppy seeds

NOTE: if you don't have buttermilk on hand just use a half a cup of milk with a splash of white vinegar in it!

1 teaspoon melted butter
powdered sugar
4 tsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin tins with paper liners.
Whisk all dry ingredients together and set aside.
Next, whisk all wet ingredients until they come together, occasionally scraping down sides of bowl.
Slowly beat or whisk in the dry ingredients until combined.
Stir in poppy seeds. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake muffins until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 20 – 22 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pans and cool on rack.

Mix together melted butter, lemon juice and enough powdered sugar to make a glaze. Drizzle or pipe glaze over tops of warm muffins.

Serve and Enjoy!
Makes about 1 dozen muffins.
