Time for Tuesdays with Dorie! Our recipe of the week is for Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, picked for us to try by Betsy at A Cup of Sweetness, thank you Betsy! I love lemon poppy seed anything and couldn't wait to give this recipe a try.
This recipe starts out with sugar and lemon zest being rubbed together. The only tiny alteration I made to this recipe was to use the zest of two lemons instead of the one called for.
I used up the last of my poppy seeds in this recipe, I had just enough! Time to add them to the grocery list.
To bake these I used my silicone medium sized bundt muffin pan and also a medium sized muffin pan that my husband's grandmother gave me in a set of three. They are not quite full sized and not quite mini. They are over 50 years old and from Hawaii, I was honored to get them and hope to pass them on to my kids someday.

Drizzled in a simple and delicious lemon powdered sugar icing, yum!
Nice moist and fluffy inside, studded with plenty of poppy seeds!
These were a perfect breakfast treat that my whole family, even picky husband, loved. I had to stop the kids at 3 muffins each, I think they would have probably gobbled up the whole batch if I'd let them! These are a make again for sure, and have already been requested by the kids again :)
