DIRECTIONS

  • Adjust rack to top third of oven and preheat to 350' F Grease muffin tin with shortening.
  • In large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and poppy seeds.
  • In separate bowl combine buttermilk, oil and eggs, whisking gently.
  • Grate lemon and add zest to dry mixture, stirring well.
  • Squeeze juice from lemon to form 1/3 cup (add more if lemon does not produce required amount, I measured 1/2 cup for my batch for more zing)
  • Pour lemon juice into dry ingredients and blend slightly (keeping the lemon juice separate from milk will prevent curdling). Pour in wet ingredients from bowl and mix only until blended, Do not over mix.
  • Spoon into tin and bake until top is slightly golden, about 18-20mins or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Make a simple glaze from powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk for an extra sweet treat.
