In my life, I tend to stick with the motto is “keep it simple.” One of my favorite food network chefs is Sandra Lee and one of her many mottos is “keeping it simple”. I love how she focuses on making delicious homemade meals but adding some semi homemade products that can make cooking dinner a bit faster. I don’t have time every night to cook a full course meal pr spend countless hours in the kitchen. One of go to “must-haves” to make dinner a bit more special is homemade rolls or muffins. I especially like making muffins because they don’t require any time to raise like some recipes for rolls do. I love all the variety of muffins there are- you can have sweet, spicy and even savory. They can compliment any meal.
Two of my favorite flavors are lemon and blueberry. Today I wanted to share with you a delicious Poppy Seed Lemonade Muffin. It has the perfect amount of flavor and it makes your house smell delicious! This recipe originally called for lemonade concentrate but I used a lemonade drink mix instead but feel free to use lemonade concentrate instead if you would rather. I like to add my own spin off of recipes all the time so don’t be afraid to play around a little bit 🙂
Poppy Seed Lemonade Muffins
- 2 cups flour
- 5 TBSP sugar
- 4 tsp poppy seeds
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup lemonade drink mix OR 1/2 cup of lemonade concentrate
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/3 cup butter melted
- 1 egg
- In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt.
- In another bowl combine lemonade drink mix ( or concentrate), milk, butter and egg until blended.
- Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.
- Fill paper lined muffin cups.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
These muffins don’t have an over powering taste of lemon so if you like more of a lemony flavor–which I normally d0- you could also add some lemon juice and lemon zest! I will probably try that the next time I make them.
I originally shared this recipe at Just us Four
