The texture of these muffins is nice. especially since they don't require any oil or butter. I added 1/4 tsp salt and decreased the poppy seeds to 1/4 C and it was still a LOT of poppy seeds. ...

This recipe needs some adjustments. The texture was good, but 1tsp each of baking soda and baking powder was too much - it was the main flavor of the muffins. 3tbsp of poppyseeds was about rig...

Not much taste. Stale after one day, because of the low- fat content. They were much better right away, warm from oven, but even then, could have had more taste.

Good flavor but needs some butter or oil in the batter. They stuck to the cup cake paper. I added raisins & chocolate chips.

The only change I made was lemon extract instead of orange, because it was what I had in my cupboard. These are very good!
