There's no discernible reason for why I suddenly need to have lemon poppy seed muffins; I mean, I can't connect it to anyone's blog or a stroll past a bakery window or a book I'm reading. The problem is, however, that my cookbooks do not have a recipe and the one I got online does not please me. They are not lemony enough and they did not include baking soda even though they had yogurt, but I liked the quarter-cup of poppy seeds.
I want a straightforward lemon poppy seed muffin recipe, one that I can make in the morning, with no monkey-business ingredients like lemon yogurt or separated eggs or lemon extract. Can you help me?
