    Tasty, moist muffins! I shifted the dry ingredients to prevent lumps. I cut down the sugar to just 1 cup. I didnt have buttermilk on hand so I just used regular 2% milk. This recipe is not anything special but a great snack!

    This is a fantastic recipe! I also used homemade raspberry jam, and the seeds didn't bother anyone. They're light and delicious!

    These were a wonderful delight! I used my home made raspberry jam and since I did not have lemon peel I added mini lemon chips and did not glaze. Poppy seed, lemon flavor and raspberry can't go wrong! Made 18 good size muffins.
