Lemon Poppyseed Muffins with Strawberries

Adapted from Poppyseed Muffins with Raspberries

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (I used a dairy free margarine)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond)
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp poppyseeds
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped

Directions

  • In a stand mixer or mixing bowl, beat together the sugar and butter/margarine.  Add the vanilla and then add the eggs, 1 at a time.  Pour in the milk and beat on slow speed, as the batter is very liquidy at this point.  Add the lemon juice and the lemon zest.  Beat for just a few seconds, just long enough to mix it in.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and baking powder and mix until batter forms.  Then mix the poppyseeds.  Finally, fold in the chopped strawberries.
  • Pour the batter into regular size muffin tins and bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cool slightly before serving.
  • Makes 24 muffins.
  • Note: The more ripe the strawberries, the better and sweeter they will be after they finish baking.  Unripe or semiripe strawberries will give the muffins a tangy flavor.

    Oooo….Yummy! I scored a great deal on strawberries yesterday and I think this would be a great recipe to use. Plus it would feed the lemon craving I’ve been having lately!

    I love strawberry muffins and these look awesome. I will leave the poppyseeds out though as I am not a fan. We haven’t had any great deals on strawberries here but they were on sale so I have some in my fridge-I will be making a batch of these muffins tomorrow;)

    Oh my….GOODNESS. My 2 girls and I made these today (minus poppyseeds) and these are SO YUMMALICIOUS! We made a mistake and ended up making a double batch because no one was looking and too many eggs added to original batch…anyway, I didn’t have enough strawberries for a double batch and lucky I had a pint of blueberries in freezer so I added them as well. I ended up making a dozen and a half muffins and a large cake pan-will freeze the muffins. We will be making these again when berries come on sale….this is a winner recipe!

    I had to add about 50% to the baking time as the strawberries made them so moist they were almost uncooked in the middle. I also used 2T instead of 3T of the poppy seeds and it had plenty even that way. Great recipe–thanks.
