1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter, room temperature
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
Zest of 2 large lemons
Juice of two large lemons*
3/4 cup of sour cream
1 1/2 Tablespoons of poppy seeds
This recipe brings back many sweet memories of my Mom. My Mom loved muffins of every kind. When she was undergoing treatment for her cancer, she had a very hard time swallowing. She could however, still eat and swallow muffins. I would make different flavors a couple of times of week. Lemon Poppy Seed muffins were her favorite. In your memory Mom with love.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk flour, salt and soda and set aside. Blend sugar and butter together in a separate bowl. Add eggs, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice. Blend in sour cream. Blend or stir in poppy seeds.
Line with baking cups or spray your muffin with nonstick cooking spray. I bake muffins either way, so it’s your choice. Fill each muffin cavity about 2/3 full. Bake for 13 minutes or until a cake tester is inserted and comes out clean. Yields a bakers dozen, lucky 13! Enjoy!
*Using fresh lemon juice produces a subtle taste of lemon. If you prefer a stronger taste, omit the juice and use lemon extract. I actually prefer real lemon juice and lemon zest. Also, make sure you microwave your lemon(s) for 15 seconds on high and you will easily get twice the juice. This tip works on all citrus.
