    Nice texture - not much taste.

    I thought this recipe was very good. It wasnt too sweet which I liked, but my boyfriend I think was hoping for something more cake like, and these came out a bit drier. But overall made a great muffin!

    This was just what I was looking for-- a lighter poppy seed muffin to replace my traditional, more cake-like recipe. I love what the buttermilk does for this recipe! I didn't make the sauce, and I thought they were sufficiently--but not too-- sweet. Good for breakfast and snacks. Thanks for a keeper!

    Instead of using 1/4 cup of oil, I used 1/8 cup oil and 1/8 cup applesauce. It lowered the calories/fat significantly (170 calories, half the fat). Great recipe, though- my husband loves them.
