Monday Muffins: Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins


I don’t know about you but in the winter I love to have fresh muffins on hand. For the next several weeks I will be sharing a favorite muffin recipe every Monday. As a general rule I cook from scratch. Occasionally I will doctor up cake mixes or other time saving mixes. I have a son who loves Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins. I discovered this recipe many years ago. It is quick and easy and you can have a batch of muffins in the oven in no time. I usually have the ingredients on hand so I can mix up a batch when my son is home visiting.
