If Meyer lemons are new to you, they seem to be a cross between a lemon and maybe a mandarin orange. They are sweet enough to eat and are a little smaller than regular lemons. If you can’t find Meyer lemons, you can use regular lemons, the muffins will just be a tad bit more tart.  I do have to encourage you to use fresh lemon juice. These are one of the best muffins ever.

Ingredients Needed:

for muffins:

  • butter, softened
  • eggs
  • sugar
  • Meyer lemon juice
  • Meyer lemon zest
  • all purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • poppy seeds

for glaze:

  • powdered sugar
  • Meyer lemon juice

How To Make:

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, combine butter, eggs and sugar, beating until creamy.  

Add lemon juice and combine.  

Add flour, baking powder, salt and poppy seeds and stir just until combined.  Do not over mix.

Scoop or spoon into lined or greased muffin tins.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted comes out clean.

Meanwhile combine powdered sugar and lemon juice for glaze and brush over baked muffins as soon as the come out of the oven.

Serve warm or at room temperature.  

Store cooled muffins in an airtight container.

  1. I made the muffins this morning, So good! The one thing about the instructions, you forgot to add the lemon zest to the instruction part. Just saying lol

  2. Made them this morning. Delicious and easy. I just added the lemon zest at the same time I added the juice. AND I also put a little zest in the icing, why not. Thanks.
