  • Stir flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, and baking soda together in a bowl.

  • Cream the sugar and butter together in a large bowl. Add the whole egg, then the egg yolk, allowing each to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next.

  • Stir sour cream, vanilla, lemon peel, and lemon extract into the sugar mixture until well combined. Add flour mixture to sour cream mixture and stir until just moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each cup about 3/4 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks.

Like another user I also skipped the additional egg yolk. I also doubled the amount of lemon extract because I didn't think the lemon was strong enough and added more poppyseeds and sprinkle more of sugar. But this recipe was a great starting point for me because I had never made them before:) Read More

Muffins with a very nice texture. I didn't have the lemon extract used lemon juice instead. To add a bit more lemon taste I brushed the top with lemon juice combined with powder sugar and that did the trick for me. Will definitely bake these again! Read More

These muffins were good but they tasted a little "eggy" to us. They had a nice lemon flavor just enough poppy seeds and were moist and tender all very good things. One thing I wasn't crazy about was the size (personal preference thing) and the fact that the tops of the muffins didn't brown very nicely. If I make again I'll fill the muffins cups up a little more and eliminate the single egg yolk going with just one egg. Might even trying adding a little glaze to the top. Read More

Absolutely loved these!!! I just made 2 modifications: I baked them for 20 minutes and used 3/4 teaspoons of lemon extract to enhance the flavor. All in all these are a great breakfast treat with a descent calorie count:) Read More

I think my wife is addicted to these. I make them at least once a week. This works great with orange as well as lemon. At first I used the recipe as written. Now I make it twenty five percent larger so that it makes an even dozen muffins. I use the fresh zest of an entire orange or lemon and the juice of said lemon or orange. I use four teaspoon of lemon or orange extract They are popular with everyone I have tried them on especially the orange version. Read More

These are delicious! I went with others advice and only used the one whole egg but went by the recipe other than that. Great flavor! Read More

Fantastic recipe! Perfect texture so moist. I made the mistake of reducing the sugar and the taste came out bland so I'll make sure not to do that next time Read More
