Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with liners and lightly coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt.
  3. Using an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the softened butter, canola oil, sugar, and vanilla on medium-high speed until the mixture becomes light and fluffy (approximately 2-4 minutes).
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating on medium speed until mostly combined after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure all ingredients are well incorporated.
  5. Gradually add half of the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix until mostly combined.
  6. Pour in the milk and lemon juice, and mix until well combined.
  7. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until the batter is smooth and well incorporated.
  8. Gently fold in the lemon zest and poppy seeds to infuse the muffins with delicious citrus goodness.
  9. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each one almost to the top.
  10. Bake the muffins on the middle rack of your oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean.
  11. Once baked to perfection, remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely. Alternatively, you can enjoy them warm!
