Lemon Muffins with Poppy Seed Streusel


I had some lemon zest that needed to be used up and thought a lemon muffin would be the perfect way to use it. These muffins are fantastic. Light and fluffy with just the right amount of lemony goodness.


I am a huge fan of lemon poppy seed muffins but I love how these muffins have the poppy seed streusel on top as opposed to the poppy seeds being mixed in.


A delicious way to start the day!


Lemon Muffins with Poppy Seed Streusel
Struesel:
3 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP flour
1 TBSP butter
1 tsp poppy seeds
Muffins:
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup cream
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 TBSP lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 375.
Combine streusel ingredients in small bowl; set aside.
For muffins, combine flour through salt in large bowl. Make a well in the center. Combine cream through sour cream in another bowl and pour into flour mixture. Stir just until combined.
Spoon batter into muffin tins and bake for 15-18 minutes or until done.

I think streusel makes a muffin so pretty. These with a big glass of milk sound yummy.
