I am the biggest fan of lemon. I love summer brew, lemon blueberry muffins, of course, cake, and the list goes on. If you are looking for lemon, trust me you are not alone.

How Many Jumbo Muffins Does This Poppy Seed Muffin Recipe Make

This recipe makes 8 jumbo muffins. Now, if you want to make more poppy seed muffins, feel free to double the recipe.

Or you can use a regular muffin tin to make muffins and make extra. Just cook them for a shorter amount of time. I would start at 12 minutes and then check them.

How Do You Make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

To make these muffins you will start by mixing your wet ingredients in one bowl, and the dry ingredients in another bowl.

Then incorporate the two, and then once the batter is fully mixed, pour the poppy seed batter into your muffin tin.

Is The Batter Supposed To Be Thick

This muffin batter is thick, so you will find that it scoops into the pan. It isn’t thin like some muffin recipes you might have made.

How To Store These Muffins

You can store these poppy seed lemon muffins on the counter if you would. I tend to wrap them lightly in plastic wrap, I find it helps the muffins from becoming soggy.

If you want you are more than welcome to store in the fridge if you would like. It will extend the shelf life a few days if it is stored in the fridge.

Can You Freeze Homemade Lemon Muffins

Yes, these homemade lemon muffins do freeze really well. Just allow the muffins to fully cool on a cooling rack.

Once the muffins are fully cool you can transfer to a freezer bag or freezer-friendly container. Then store in the freezer for up to three months.

Then you can thaw on the counter or toss a muffin or two in the microwave to warm them up.

Can I Make These Muffins Without Poppy Seeds

Absolutely! If you want to make just straight lemon muffins, skip adding in the poppy seeds, and bake according to the recipe card below!
