Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
I’ll admit, Lemon Poppyseed isn’t my go to muffin flavor, I’m a blueberry person myself. But, I do enjoy lemon poppyseed and this looked like a good recipe, so I decided to go for it. And it was a pretty good recipe.
Confession: Normally when a recipe calls for lemon zest, I don’t do it. I think it’s a waste of a lemon if the juice of the whole lemon isn’t being used in a recipe, so I just replace it with 2 tbsps of lemon juice, always works for me.
But this time, the recipe says zest and juice of a lemon, so I decide to go for it and see if it really makes a difference. I will say I don’t love the texture if gave the batter. Because another confession: I always “test” batter. AKA eat it. And the texture was weird. And honestly? I don’t think it added anything more than if I just did more lemon juice. So. That was my experiment with this one.
Also, remember that time I said I would always check for muffin tin liners?
Yeah. Forgot to check. So, I sprayed the shit out of the muffin pan and it actually worked, shockingly.
But yeah, this is a solid recipe. They taste great out of the oven, but they stale pretty quickly, so eat them quickly!
