Yield: Makes 12 muffins
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 20 Mins<Br>

Ingredients

  • 2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2½ tbsp poppy seeds
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • Zest of 2 large lemons, finely grated
  • Confectioners sugar, for dusting

Special Equipment:

  • 12-cup muffin pan
  • Paper liners

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and poppy seeds, making a well in the center.

2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the sour cream, butter, oil, and lemon zest. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just mixed. Divide the batter among the muffin cups, filling each one three–quarters full.

3. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the pan, and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Sift confectioner's sugar over the tops while still warm.

    2 and 2/3 cup of flour cannot be correct - you get dough, not batter with this much flour! Please correct to appropriate amount.

    The correct amount of flour is 2 2/3 cup- please see the correction. Thanks, deebears, for bringing this to our attention!

    Yum! These are so good. They are not too sweet and really easy to make. I am not a baker at all and they turned out great.
