Moist Lemon Poppyseed Muffin Recipe

I have been looking for a good, moist Lemon Poppyseed muffin or bread recipe. I would prefer to make it from scratch if possible. Does anyone out there have a good recipe? Thanks in advance.

Hi Lisa, I've been making this bread for over 25 years now. My family loves it and it is simple to make. Great for Holiday giving as well.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Poppy Seed Bread:

3 cups Flour

1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

1 1/2 Cups Milk

1 1/2 Tbsp.Poppy Seeds

1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla

1 1/2 tsp. Salt

2 1/2 Cups Sugar

1 Cup + 2 Tbsp. Salad Oil

3 Eggs

1 1/2 tsp. Almond Extract or Lemon Extract


3/4 Cup Powered Sugar

2 tsp. Butter, melted

1/4 Cup Orange Juice

1/2 tsp.Almond Extract or Lemon Extract

Glaze ingredients can be adjust to your taste.

Combined all bread ingredients in one bowl, beat for 2 minutes or until well incorporated. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans (you can also use cooking spray) Bake for 1 hour. Check after 45mins. and every five minutes there after-Can poke toothpick in to check.

Combine ingredients for glaze in small sauce pan and stir over low/medium heat until well incorporated, remove from heat,spoon over loaves after removing loafs from oven.

Recipe will also make 4-5 mini loaves-will take less baking time 30 to 35 min.

I always set my timer for less time when baking to remind me to check for doneness. Best if not over baked. Good luck and Enjoy!
