Lemon and poppy seeds muffins


Everything started with a naughty breakfast at Starbucks. One morning I was super hungry and heading to what I knew was going to be a loooong booooring meeting. So I decided I needed a naughty breakfast and treated myself to a Latte Macchiato and a Lemon and poppy seeds muffin on my way to that meeting. I never order muffins, I swear, it was just this time. And when I never order muffins I make sure they are chocolaty ;) But that day I was curious and tried the lemon muffin. And I loooooved it. So I knew I had to try it at home!

I’ve found lots of recipes, I’ve combined them… and here you have the result! :) It’s super good, moist but a little bit crunchy thanks to the poppy seeds. And it’s really easy, so you will be out of the kitchen in less than an hour.
You’ll need:
– 300 gr. all purpose flour
– 3 tea spoons baking powder
– 160 gr. sugar
– 2 eggs
– 250 gr. crème fraîche
– 60 gr. melted butter
– 1 spoon poppy seeds
– 1 big lemon (You will need the zest for the dough and the juice for the icing)
For the icing:
– 200 gr. icing sugar
– 8 spoons lemon juice


In a bowl, whisk together the flour, the baking powder, the poppy seeds and the lemon zest. Now add the eggs (beat them a little bit previously), the crème fraîche and the melted butter. Stir. You got this. The dough is ready now!

Divide the dough among prepared muffin cups and bake them 17 to 20 minutes in a preheated oven (170º).In the meantime prepare your icing: just mix the sugar with the lemon juice. Easy peasy! But remember to cool the muffins before adding the icing!


And that’s all! You will have lovely muffins that will last up to 5 days. You’ll love them, I promise!

  1. Such beautiful looking muffins, perfect for a breakfast on the run or a morning meeting!
    I wouldn’t have thought of adding creme fraiche, does it have a big impact?x x

    • The crème fraîche makes them super moist and it adds a great texture. You should try them! Maybe with orange flavour? Valencia has great oranges ;)
      Thanks for your comment!
