Patty Garrison


1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup salted butter room temperature
1 tablespoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs room temperature
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 cup sour cream room temperature
1/4 cup poppy seeds
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk

Glaze - 1 cup powdered sugar
5 teaspoons milk
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a muffin tin, and use muffin papers if desired. Set muffin tin aside.
With a mixer cream the sugar and the butter together. When light and fluffy add lemon extract, vanilla extract, and eggs. Beat together until well blended.
Add lemon zest, sour cream and poppy seeds. Mix until all ingredients are just blended in.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir until the mixture is uniform.
To combine the dry ingredients into the cream butter, add a third of the flour into the butter, and then add about a third of the milk. Stir gently then add in the next third of the flour and milk, stir gently. Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are well incorporated. Add remaining four and then the remaining milk. Stir until just blended.

Fill each muffin tin 2/3 full. Bake muffins for 24 minutes. You may want to start to check the muffins at about 20 minutes by inserting a toothpick to see if they are done. When the toothpick comes out clean the muffins are done.

Lemon Glaze:
In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, milk, lemon extract and lemon zest. Stir until well blended. When the ruffians have cooled to room temperature you cans drizzle the glaze over the muffins.
