These lemon poppyseed muffins are lemony muffin perfection! They are sweet and moist with a nice punch of lemony goodness. My family pretty much inhaled these delicious muffins!
They taste awesome plain, but these muffins are taken to the next level with a delicious and lemony glaze. Everything is better with glaze, right!?
One warning! Please read the recipe carefully and don’t confuse the lemon extract and lemon juice. They are different and you only need a tiny bit of lemon extract because it is lemon oil and it’s very powerful stuff.
