Reviews forPoppy Seed Muffins
"Yummy!!!!! i have made these a few time. I did make a few changes. I don't have almond extract, So I left it out. I added the zest and Juice of 2 big lemon. Soooo Good!!!! I'm Addicted! My kids eat 2-3 at a time."
"Yummy flavor. I usually measure my flour in grams but I think the submitter uses more than the gram-equivalent of 3 cups of flour, given how runny the batter was. If it's supposed to be that runny, I'd recommend adding 2t baking powder to avoid a flat or sunken top (as happened with my muffins)."
"These were a hit with all the neighbors. I did swap out the oil for unsweetened applesauce. I topped the muffins with slivered almond prior to baking too. They are a bit heavier but that may be because of my swap from oil to applesauce. The flavor though is excellent."
"Really good! So moist and perfect. I put a healthy twist to them by using some wheat flour and water in substitution for the milk (I'm lactose intolerant). However this is a really good recipe and I'll remember to add it to my cookbook"
"This is a wonderful recipe and it was a huge hit with my family, especially my picky five year old son!"
"Very good but I did make it a bit healthier. I did 1/2 white flour 1/2 whole wheat flour. I then did 1/2 canola oil and 1/2 unsweetened applesauce. Then I reduced the sugar by half to 1 and 1/4 cup. They were delicious and so moist. I agree with other reviews that I found, you only mix it until it is just combined. It's a lumpy batter. I only got 19 muffins out of the recipe, and I was able to bring the calories down to 187 and fat down to 7 for each muffin. Definitely try these! They are great and obviously very adaptable to your needs."
"At first I thought it was a bit too much oil, but since I left them out for a day and then reheated them I thought it was enough to keep them moist :)I loved the recipe, I dont think I used as much sugar (headaches) but for my first time making home made muffins even my husband was impressed."
