How to Make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a muffin tray with cooking spray.

Rub the sugar with the chopped lemon zest together in a bowl with your fingertips until the sugar is moist and the lemon fragrance strong. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together until well combined.

Beat the sour cream, lemon juice, eggs, vanilla extract, softened butter, and lemon sugar together in a bowl with a mixer until creamy and smooth. Slowly combine the flour mixture with the sour cream mixture. Add the poppy seeds and mix well.

Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin cups in the tray.
