    The muffins came out really dense. Also a bit bland.

    This recipe tasted great, but came out more like bread than like a muffin. While lemon poppy seed bread is apparently a great thing, I would use less flour (maybe 2 cups instead of 3) for this recipe in order to gain more of a muffin texture. Still, a great recipe!

    used an extra half cup of sugar. still not sweet enough, tasted no lemon at all, even with the addition of 1/4 cup lemon juice. the yogurt gives it an undesireable, close texture.

    These had a wonderful flavor. I adjusted the amount of flour used and used 2 1/2 cups instead of 3 cups because the batter was already thick. Additionally, I used half the amount of poppy seeds. For the glaze, I used half the amount of sugar and it still was really sweet. Thanks for this recipe!

    Loved this recipe! The muffins had a nice rise. They look just like the ones you see finely displayed in a bakery. Thank you so much for this recipe! This is the first recipe on your site that I’ve tried. I look forward to trying more!

    Some tips:
    -Dont’ use muffin paper liners – butter the wells as instructed. They will come out and will look so much better.
    -Don’t split the batter between two 12 cup muffin pans. Follow the instructions as stated. Even if it looks like you’ve over-filled the wells, they will come out perfect, nice and big.
    -My muffins were done in 25 minutes, but next time I’ll bake them for 22 minutes.
    -While the glaze is still wet, sprinkle some lemon zest on top. Looks pretty. ;)

    My changes:
    -Instead of 1.5 cup yogurt, I used 1 cup milk with 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1/2 cup 5% greek yogurt thinned with a teaspoon of whole milk.
    -I didn’t have enough all purpose flour in the pantry, so I used 2 cups all purpose flour and 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour. It worked wonders!
    -I had no poppy seeds, so I used chia seeds. It was a perfect substitute.
