I rate it 4/5 stars because you could really taste the orange flavor and it was very sweet but we made a few mistakes that didn't make it taste very good. Read More

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. I didn't really like the flavor of the orange extract in these muffins- at the very least I think I'd add some zest if making again. Also the batch made 22 regular-size muffins rather than the 12 the recipe states. Read More

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 right so 1/2c would probably be way too much. I did substitute 1tsp lemon juice and 1tsp orange peel for the orange extract. Read More

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

I made these according to the recipe. They were heavy and rather bland in flavor. Read More

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

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. Read More
