TWD: Lemon Poppyseed Muffins


Tuesdays With Dorie is pretty chocolate-heavy this month, so it was nice to see something bright and citrusy, in the form of Lemon Poppyseed Muffins, in the middle of the month. I made these on Sunday morning, and the only difficult part was waiting for the muffins to cool so they could be glazed! I would recommend not lining your muffin tins for this recipe, as my glaze dripped on them a bit. I subbed in plain nonfat yogurt for the sour cream and don’t think the texture suffered tremendously. Okay, they probably would have been a bit richer and softer with it, but I still thought they were a nice treat.



Since Josh consumed the majority of the muffins, I asked him for a Deliciousness rating and he said 7 (enjoyed them, though probably won’t request them again) and I gave the recipe a 2.5 for Effort, for an EDR of 2.8. A big thank you to Betsy of A Cup of Sweetness for a lovely January selection. You can find the recipe here on Betsy’s site and click over to the TWD site for more muffins.

I think for a lower fat option, yoghurt was a good sub choice. Glad Josh liked them.

They look really good! I love the idea of using some yogurt in place of the sour cream...I made mine the fattening version:)

I love lemon and these look great. I find that lower-fat works better than non-fat.

They look perfect with the glaze. I don't know if I'd make them again either, but they were tasty.

Man, can't believe I'm just barely getting over here before it's time to post again for TWD! Your muffins look fantastic :) I completely agree on the liners - mine were a sticky mess after the glaze went on.
