We always enjoy the combo of lemon & poppy seed, & these tasty muffins are no exception ~ ABSOLUTELY GREAT, especially with the inclusion of the whole wheat flour & wheat germ! Served them with a choice of lemon curd or a homemade cranberry butter I'd made! You've got a real winner with these muffins, & I'll be making them again before long!
