Tuesdays with Dorie: Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Tuesday, January 18



What could make a morning more perfectly tolerable than a cup of dark roast coffee and a lemon poppy seed muffin? To me, mornings are like fresh sheets of clean white paper just waiting for a story to unfold, they couldn't care less about what happened yesterday. And if one could eat an actual morning, I believe that it would taste like a lemon poppy seed muffin- soft centered, bright, and sweetly unpretentious. But then again they do contain lemons, so I may be biased. :-)

Many thanks to Betsy, of A Cup of Sweetness, for picking this as her Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. Ever since I got my hands on Dorie's book, I had been chopping at the bit to make these. Last Spring, when it seemed as though no one was going to chose them, Ever, I finally broke down and made a batch. And since I've already jumped the gun on a few TWD recipes, I wanted to be patient in the the New Year, and hold off on sharing them...it wasn't easy. These muffins are a classic. They're moist, tartly sweet, and have a pleasant texture that can only be delivered via poppy seeds. So please, go make a batch and see for yourself! You can find the recipe on Betsy's blog by clicking Here.

  3. I haven't had these in years and have thinking (why?!) about them. I couldn't click on your link to get to A Cup of Sweetness to the recipe but I googled it and yeah, looks so easy. I will be doing some substituting to make it non dairy, so I'll see how that works!

  9. Hey Valerie, these look very unpretentiously delicious. Citrus and poppy is certainly an underrated combination for morning or tea time treats;-) Oh, and these muffins look particularly fluffy too-perfect for dark coffee!
    p.s. An iron will?! I need to get one of those...

Such an artistic delight to open the page and find such an unexpected pleasure... and the mmmmuffin is to perfect in it's simplicity. Absolutely gorgeous and I don't even like lemon poppyseed anything. Stunning. What text did you use over your photos? (really) That is so whimsical. I have truly been fed on my little stop over here, today.

    Hi, Valerie
    The font I used is called 'Brown Bear Funk'. It's one of many unique styles found on Picnik. :-)
