These were delicious-light and fluffy. I used the vanilla extract and only had 2 tbsp. of poppy seeds, but next time will use the full 1/4 cup. They turned out so pretty. I think I would like to try a lemon juice glaze on these next time but these were a hit at our family reunion just the way they are-thanks for sharing!

I chose this recipe to make in our Adopted Recipe Swap #2. Newspapergal, you picked a winner when you adopted this one! These muffins were so moist and delicious. I did have to make a couple of changes in making the recipe. I couldn't find any fresh raspberries, so used a 12oz bag of frozen ones. I also didn't have any cake flour, so I used all-purpose flour. We really enjoyed these and the entire batch was gone in no time flat!
