Simple Muffin Recipes

I would love to have a simple, easy way to make muffins. For example, for poppy seed muffins, poppy seeds and lemon pudding, of course with other ingredients. Is this possible?

Try cake mixes, basic ones with pudding added. For lemon poppyseed, just add the poppy seeds to a lemon cake mix. You might have to experiment a little, maybe add some flour to make the dough more muffin-like. Adding more flour would also cut the sweetness a little too.
