Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

This week Bake Of The Week is Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins adapted from

Actually Pat was asking me to bake her some sour-ish lemon-y desert during dinner at Starview. I did not promise her anything. But when I was home on Monday afternoon, I searched the internet for some easy-to-make lemon recipes and I found one which calls for ingredients which I already have.

Flour. Butter. Eggs. Sugar. Baking Powder. Salt. Poppy Seeds. Lemons.

Recipe calls for 2 lemons but I only had one. Well, I just made-do with what I have. I tried to squeeze as much juice as I could from the one lemon I have. And to make the muffins more lemon-y, I also poured in 1/2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice in the batter.

Which means I only have very little lemon juice left for my lemon glaze. Totally out from the recipe.

Nicely browned and burst top muffins fresh from the oven.
Fresh from the oven to the wire rack for cooling

With sugared lemon glaze

The smaller green containers are for friends and the big container is for family of course. My family has many mouths and they are big fans of my bakes, you know! :)

All packed ready for friends and family

Pat says they were yummy. But lemon glaze a little sweet for her. Not sure if they are really yummy to her or she just simply praise in hope for more deserts from me ;P

Giving some to Angie for her little boy Ee Jay. And the rest will be gobbled up by the Tan Family :)
