Breakfasts during the week in our home usually consist of grabbing a bagel and a thermos of juice on the way out the door to work and school. So when the weekends roll around, I often like to do something a little bit special.

Lemon poppyseed muffins are not only delicious, they are also easy to make. And if you drizzle this blueberry glaze over the top, it definitely jazzes things up a bit, don’t you think?

These delicious muffins start off with a simple batter, poured into a muffin pan with liners. Bake them for just under 20 minutes, then pull them out and let them cool.

Once cooled, the blueberry glaze gets drizzled over the top. This glaze is heavenly! (I might even have caught my husband sticking his finger in the bowl when he thought I wasn’t looking.)

For the Muffins:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt

For the Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries thawed but not drained
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons milk


For the Muffins:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350, and line muffin tins with liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one a at time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the lemon zest and vanilla.
  3. With the mixer running at low speed, add in the dry ingredients in two additions alternating with the yogurt, beating until just incorporated.

For the Glaze:

  1. Mash the thawed berries in a medium-sized bowl to release lots of juice. Remove the blueberry skins from the juice and discard. Add the vanilla, milk, and lemon juice; then add the powdered sugar, whisking to combine.
  2. Drizzle glaze over completely cooled muffins and allow to set for 20 minutes prior to serving.
