    Young Mom's Note:

    Taken from 'The Canadian Baker' Blog. Absolutely the best texture I've ever had. Moist, fluffy, and light. Adaptable for blueberry lemon muffins, raspberry orange etc. I will add more lemon juice next time as I found it not zesty enough, and will cut back on the poppy seeds slightly. A simple lemon glaze makes this the perfect sweet treat for a cold day or an after lunch dessert.

      This has become our standard Monday morning breakfast -- it's something that gets everyone out of bed! I make this with 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup unbleached, and it comes out fine. I also leave my oven rack where it is but bake at 375. This makes a lot -- I use the Reynolds self-standing disposable aluminum muffin cups and fill up 20 of them.

      We added about 1/3 cup of frozen blueberries (dusted with flour to keep from sticking together) and these were delightful. Not too much or little of anything. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC 09
