Google says Lemon Poppy seed muffins are in the top 10 list of favorite muffins, and I can see why!  That moist delicious lemony flavour can’t be beat.

Each of the bloggers in this roundup of the best lemon poppy seed muffin recipes includes important baking tips.

 

  • My favorite – and very new tip is to take the time to sift your dry ingredients together.  I guarantee you will enjoy a lighter, fluffier bake if you do.
  • Letting your eggs get to room temperature will eliminate flat muffin tops.  The extra few minutes is just so worth it!
  • Also, while muffins come together quickly, be careful not to over-mix, or you will have a tough, chewy muffin and we don’t want that!  I’m sure you experienced bakers know that, but some of us are brand new and still learning!

 

So I’ve compiled The Top 10 Best Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Recipes just for you, no matter what your particular diet preference is! These recipes come from top bloggers, so be sure to check out their blogs!

What is different about this Lemon Yoghurt Poppy Seed Muffin recipe by Betty Crocker is that it uses a lemon flavored yogurt.  Have you tried that before?  And there is also a ‘light version’ that allows for swapping out the egg for an egg substitute, skim milk and applesauce for a sweetener.  The lighter version is 150 calories, compared to 180 calories for the full, so if you asked me, I’d go for the full on recipe for and enjoy my 30 calories!

Apple Pandowdy is a delicious combination of apple pie and apple cobbler, easy to make and a great skillet recipe. Apple Pandowdy is a quick and easy dessert.

Apple Pan Dowdy

Apple Pandowdy

Do you have a cast iron skillet?  Then this will be your Go To recipe.  A Pandowdy is similar to an Apple Cobbler and is the way they used to make apple pies, way back when, before we started making pie crust.  The light biscuit dough gets dropped on top of the apples by spoonfuls, and of course everything bakes together and gets all happy and cozy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Upside Down Apple Cake

 

Upside Down Apple Cake

You’ve heard about Pineapple Upside down Cake?  Well now there is an apple version, and let me tell you, those deliciously baked apples are just bursting with brown sugar, cinnamon and look at that caramel sauce!  Oh yeah.

My love affair with perfect pie recipes has been a life long pursuit.  My parents loved to camp so we on our travels we made many a pit stop at the local diner.  And you know what you always find at Diners?  That’s right.   The most beautiful pies on earth.  Seriously.  I would absolutely salivate when I looked in the dessert showcase at all of those pies.  As a kid, Blueberry Pie was my number one go to pie.  No ice cream or whipped cream for me though.  Just pie.

Diners are still my absolutely fav place to find the absolute perfect pie recipes!

Now I started to put this collection together for National Pie Day – which is on January 23 every year.  Kind of like a Christmas Day for Pies!  But life happens, and although I put up an amazing post on Buzzfeed – which you can still enjoy here, my post for Pie Lady Bakes has been a little delayed.  Until now!  I love doing roundups with my food blogger friends, they are so creative and their recipes are awesome!  Check out FBC Recipe Sharing on Facebook, if you haven’t already.
