Cooking has not been a priority around our house lately. BeeBop and I have had much more important things to do. Like going to movies and gemstone hunting in the creek. (Can you tell the grandkids are here?) So, meals have been simple. Quick and easy recipes are the order of the day. If it takes more than 30 minutes to prep, assemble, and cook…forget it! We’ll get back to the more complicated, longer-cooking recipes soon. In the meantime, I have an easy little muffin recipe for you this morning. It’s not too sweet, not too savory and takes a shortcut in the prep by using a packaged baking mix. What can I say, it’s summer and I need all the shortcuts I can get!
These easy poppy seed muffins are just right with a cup of coffee for breakfast or afternoon snack. The poppy seeds give them a beautiful interior with a little crunch and the lemon glaze provides just the right amount of tart-sweet finish to make them perfect.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 12 muffin cups by greasing or lining with baking cups.
In a large bowl, place the baking mix, sugar, and poppy seeds. Mix with a whisk or fork until ingredients are well combined. Make a shallow well in the center of the mixture and add the egg, sour cream, and vanilla. Mix until ingredients are just moistened. Do not over mix.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the muffins comes out clean. Allow to cool 10 minutes in the pan. Remove and cool completely before glazing.
For the glaze: mix the sugar and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Drizzle over the cooled muffins.
