The reason why I consistently choose lemon poppyseed muffins in the winter isn’t just for their flavor…. well, let’s be honest, it is for their amazing flavor. But even more than that, it’s because lemon always transports me to summer and warmer temps when I’m freezing my butt off in the Chicago winters. And sure, yes, I’m writing this post in the beginning of March in Chicago, where 40 degrees outside actually feels like summer (yikes, I know), but to a lot of other places in the US, 40 degrees still feels like winter! Looking at you, my Atlanta friends.
Although it really feels like spring in the beginning of March for once here where I am, I am SURE the midwest weather will pull something out of its sleeve later on this month and we’ll get a cold front again. And to that I say, Lemon Poppyseed muffins. For when the craving for warmer temps hits.
These muffins are incvredibly fluffy, packed full of zesty lemon, and balanced out with a tasty light lemon glaze that feels like sunshine in every damn bite.
