In this Instructable, I will show you how to make lemon poppy seed muffins from scratch. This easy homemade lemon poppy seed muffins recipe is so yummy, not too sweet, with the perfect amount of lemon flavor. And you can always add more or less of the lemon according to your tastes. If you love baking muffins, give this recipe a try! If I can do it, you can do it. Let's get baking.

  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (for a lighter muffin use 2 1/4 cups) (300g)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder (10g)
  • 1/2 TSP。baking soda (3g)
  • 1/2 TSP。盐(2g)
  • 2汤匙。罂粟种子(18g)可以或多或少使用
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar (200g)
  • zest from 1 lemon can use more or less
  • 1杯全牛奶希腊酸奶或仅1 7盎司容器(200g)
  • 1/2杯牛奶(整体,2%,1%,脱脂,杏仁等)(120ml)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (salted or unsalted) if using salted reduce the actual salt added to 1/4 tsp. (113g)
  • 2个大鸡蛋
  • 2汤匙新鲜柠檬汁,可以或多或少地添加(30ml)
  • 1茶匙。香草提取物(5ml)


  • 1 to 1/4 cups of powdered sugar (200 to 250g)
  • 2汤匙。lemon juice (30ml)

*1 medium to large lemon gives you about 3 to 4 tbsp of lemon juice. 1 large lemon is sufficient for this recipe, for both the juice and the zest.


  • Bowls
  • 搅拌
  • Spoon
  • Cupcake/Muffin pan
  • Paper muffin/cupcake cups
  • Ice cream scoop (optional)
  • Spatula


Preheat the oven to 400 F/205 C. Make sure the main rack is in the middle position.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and poppy seeds.

Step 3: Butter and Sugar

Melt the butter in the microwave or on the stovetop then pour it into a large bowl. Add the sugar and whisk until well combined.

Step 4: Mix, Mix, Mix


Mix in both of the eggs.


Mix in the milk and the yogurt. You can use sour cream too if you don't want to use yogurt.


Finally, mix in the dry ingredient mixture a little at a time until well combined. Start with the whisk, and then switch to a wooden spoon or sturdy spatula. Or of course, you can use an electric mixer as well. And now the lemon poppy seed muffin batter is ready to go.


Line a muffin pan with paper cups or spray it with cooking spray. Then use an ice cream scoop or spoons to fill up each cavity. You will probably have enough to make 16 muffins, depending on how much you fill each cavity up.

You could make more if you make them smaller, or less if you make them even larger, and fill each cup to the brim.

Step 8: Bake the Muffins



Step 9: Make the Glaze


You can dip the tops of the muffin in the glaze. Or you can make the glaze even thicker and place it in a piping bag or plastic bag with the corner snipped off.


Now glaze the muffins however you like, or don't put any glaze on them, totally up to you. If you do use the glaze, allow the glaze to set for about 10 minutes. Of course, you can always eat the muffins if the glaze is still wet. Enjoy!
