Favorite Ingredient Friday…..Muffin Edition



Oops, I forgot that this week’s FIF was a Muffin Edition. SO, I’m posting TWO FIF entries 🙂 And that’s ok 🙂

I bake muffins all the time to sell with my breads, but I keep my repertoire for those rather limited. I do branch out more with the family, but I think that I’ve posted most of our favorite muffin recipes in the past (to see those recipes, you can do a search for “muffins” in the search button here on my blog). Today I’ll share a recipe that I make quite often for selling. They are DEFINITELY a favorite of my family’s, but they are white flour/white sugar, so I try to not have extras available for them very often. I’m going to have to find another equally wonderful recipe for the same type of muffin that I can tweak to meet our family’s needs better. But so far this is what I have found and love 🙂 This recipe is from the Taste of Home website


A HUGE Thank You to Overwhelmed with Joy for hosting this meme each week. If you would like to participate or just want some fantastic recipes, please click on the banner above to visit OW’s blog.



Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins


* 2 cups biscuit/baking mix (I do use a homemade version of this that DOES NOT contain any hydrogenated or transfats)

* 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix
* 1/4 cup poppy seeds
* 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup milk
* 1/4 cup vegetable oil
* 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice


In a large bowl, combine the baking mix, pudding mix, poppy seeds and lemon peel. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice; drizzle over muffins. Yield: 1 dozen.

    HI Lori!
    These look great, I love poppyseed muffins. I haven’t made them except for a mix, but I imagine this would taste much better.
    Thanks for visiting me and for your prayers for Amanda.
    With my laptop out of commission I have to be a lot more strategic in my blogging, I’m getting it figured out though :)!
    I hope your day is full of blessings!
