Amazing Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Perfect For Breakfast


These Bakery Style Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are perfectly sweetened and tender with a tart lemon glaze and sprinkling of coarse sugar!


*Disclaimer: I received a cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen for review purposes only. All opinions are completely my own.

It’s been a little while, but I have another great cookbook to share with you! Thanks to America’s Test Kitchen‘s latest cookbook, What Good Cooks Know, we’ve been happily eating these delicious bakery style lemon poppy seed muffins!

My husband and I agreed that these muffins were definitely going to make an appearance at our house again! (Be sure you check out the giveaway below to see how you can win a copy for yourself!)


Just look at them. Not too dense. Not too sweet (In fact, they have an addicting tart lemon glaze on top!). Not too oily (There’s actually no oil in them!). Can you tell what I don’t like about a lot of muffins?! Oh, and they’re big!

Thanks to the work of America’s Test Kitchen experts, the recipe is foolproof. Just like the rest of the recipes that are found in this handbook

This cookbook really is an essential handbook. This handbook is the first time that the cumulative wisdom of the test kitchen has been gathered and organized to create a go-to kitchen handbook for home cooks.

Perfect for brand-new cooks and experienced cooks alike, this book contains equipment testing, ingredient tasting, food science, technique instruction, research and development. And, of course, recipes that put all of that information together!

And those recipes? They contain a step-by-step tutorial and helpful tips to ensure the right outcome! As you’d expect from America’s Test Kitchen, each step also contains a “why.” This, as I’m sure you’ve come to realize, is my favorite part. I love knowing why a certain method, ingredient, utensil, etc. is necessary for the outcome.


These muffins were just one of the recipes that this handbook contains. It actually has a basic recipe that comes with 4 variations that you can make from it! I think everyone needs a go-to muffin recipe. Muffins are just so versatile, and they’re super easy to make!

These bakery style lemon poppy seed muffins are no different. Just few steps before you’re biting into your new favorite muffin! You can enjoy one for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even dessert!
