Yogurt Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I love making muffins. They are a great quick snack on the go, and so versatile. I was craving muffins this week and had some yogurt to use up. hen I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com, I just had to make them. And the good thing about muffins?? They are SO VERY EASY TO WHIP UP. I can make a batch of muffins in about 30 mins. Fantastic!



2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup poppy seeds
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup lemon flavored yogurt-I used plain and added some fresh lemon juice to up the lemon flavor
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Lightly grease a muffin tin. Combine the flour, 3/4 cup white sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a separate bowl mix the eggs, yogurt, vegetable oil and lemon zest. Blend well and pour over the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Do no overmix!
Spoon batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 20 minutes. 
Let muffins cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing them from the tin.  Serve warm or room temp. They freeze very well too!
