Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by oriana

These are an all time favourite of mine. They are best eaten straight out of the oven as they have a super crunchy top on them (this softens as they cool). They are so beautiful you won't be able to stop at one! From the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook.

I found this easy (had to make my own self rising flour) but it lacked the lemon punch I was looking for. I would up the amount of lemon zest used and possibly even use an extract. I will probably make this again with a few adjustment.
