Lemon Poppy Seeds Muffins


This was great. Next time I would use a lemon cake micpx. I juiced one lemon and measured the amount of juice. I subtracted that amount of juice so I used one cup of water and took away three tablespoons. I then added the three tablespoons of lemon juice to the water. I also added the zest of one lemon. After the muffins came out of the oven, I used a straw and poked holes in them. I then poured a hot glaze over them. YUM

For Muffins:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons poppy seeds

2/3 cup greek yogurt
