Muffins for Music, Part V~Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

~Lemon Poppyseed Muffins~

Cream together:

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon vanilla or lemon extract
1 cup sour cream
Mix together and add to creamed mixture:
2 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix well and add:
2-3 Tablespoons poppyseeds

Fill muffin cups and bake at 400 F. Makes 10-12 muffins depending on the size of your muffin cups.

Tayta's tip: watch carefully and rotate muffin tins if necessary.

After they cool, glaze muffins with Lemon Glaze:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
(adjust if necessary)

Of course, you can double or even triple this recipe, which is what Tatya did when she made these each week for her bake sale.
