My office is very happy! I made these last night and brought them in today, and I have some very happy co-workers this morning! I used about a 1/2 cup of poppy seeds instead of the measly 3 teaspoons. I also used brown sugar, since I was running out of white. I made mini-muffins, managed to get about 40 out of the amount of batter here. This is a great breakfast muffin!
