Lemon poppy seed is one of my favorite combos. I love chocolate, but there’s something about the sweet, slightly tangy flavor of the lemon paired with the crunchy, almost nutty flavor of the poppy seeds that is divine. It’s a match made in heaven!

I’ve been meaning to share this recipe for months now and thought I had better before summer turns to fall and everything is pumpkin this and pumpkin that ☺️. I think one of the reasons why I didn’t sooner is because I wasn’t satisfied with how the pictures turned out. I’m a perfectionist and while having kids has definitely helped, I’m still pretty hard on myself when it comes to food photography. When you shoot in natural light, sometimes it’s difficult to make the camera see exactly how you do. Sometimes the clouds roll in and it rains for 4 hours straight and you’re not sure if it’s day or night. Yep. 😩

It yields a dozen light, fluffy, tender muffins. They taste just like the ones you’d get from an upscale bakery. My entire family is obsessed! What makes these muffins so amazing? Their texture and flavor is spot on! I’ve got a few tips and tricks for you to get them looking and tasting like perfection. Are you ready to get baking?
