Reviews forPoppy Seed Muffins
"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."
"I know why they're so good...lots of sugar and oil!! Next time, I will use 1/2 c. oil and 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce to cut back on all the fat. Otherwise, very good flavor--my kiddos loved them!"
