Almond Poppy Seed Muffins

"I had almond poppyseed muffins at a restaurant called Yoders in Shipshewana, In. a few years ago and they were the best muffins I've ever eaten. I searched on the internet and found this recipe. Not sure what site it came from. I hope you like them."

  1. Aside from halfing it (with 2 eggs instead of 1.5), I made the recipe as stated...but used 1 teaspoon of the almond extract because it seemed like others were. I don't think I would have used less than that, knowing the flavor. What the recipe calls for would only give a tiny hint of almond. It ended up good and fluffy & I had 3--only planned to eat two--which suggests they were good and enticing. My favorite thing about this recipe is it only uses 1 bowl.
  2. These were WONDERFUL! We only used 3/4 cup oil, 2 eggs and 2 1/2 teaspoons of extract. They were light, fluffy and flavorful just like a box mix. This recipe is now in my recipe box. We have 3 children ages 2, 4 & 7 and they all LOVED them as well!
  3. I made a double recipe so I would have some to freeze. I used 2 cups of oil and 3 t. of almond extract. I made 26 muffins, a loaf of bread, and 4 jumbo muffins. These were very good. Thanks!
  4. I did not have oily issues others did and the texture was good. However, it didn't have a lot of flavor. It needs at least twice the amount of almond extract and at least one more tablespoon of poppy seeds. A bit of vanilla might help too. Some suggested using butter instead of oil, that might also add some flavor.
  5. Love it! everytime I have made this it's a hit!


  1. I used 3/4 cup melted butter instead of oil, 2 eggs, and 3 tsp. of almond flavoring. On top I sprinkled a 1/2 tsp of sugar in the raw over the top. Delicious!!!!


I hate to bake (almost as much as I hate to vacuum!), and I'll go to great lengths to avoid having to make cookies.
