I used this lemon poppy seed muffin recipe for the basis of my muffins.
Citrus Poppy Seed Muffins
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup poppy seeds
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine/5 tbsp canola oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
- 1 tablespoon grate orange peel
- 1/3 cup lemon juice and orange juice (feel free to just use lemon juice for a more traditional taste)
- 2/3 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp grapefruit juice
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
Step 2: Mix whole wheat flour, poppy seeds, baking soda, and salt.
Step 3: Beat butter and sugar together, then add eggs. Add citrus zests and juices, and beat the mixture until all ingredients are incorporated.
Step 4: Add half the dry mixture. Add milk, then add the rest of the dry mixture.
Step 5: Mix in white chocolate chips.
Step 6: Spoon into muffin cups.
Step 7: Bake for 15-18 minutes. Cool for 5.
Step 8: Dip the tops of the muffins in your citrus glaze. "What glaze is that?" you may be wondering. Well I'll tell you! It's this glaze!
Mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon grapefruit juice, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until smooth. You should use this right away, so you might want to prepare it while your muffins are in the oven.
Always remember: sharing is caring!
