Ingredients
  

  • cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest or zest of a whole lemon
  • 1 stick unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice or juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Zest one lemon into the sugar and stir to combine. Melt the butter and let cool slightly.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, Greek yogurt, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla. Whisk in the sugar until combined.
  • In a large bowl, combine the all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined, folding in the poppy seeds.
  • Divide the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each about ¾ of the way full.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 375 and bake for 12-16 minutes more, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  • Transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool.
  • While muffins are cooling, whisk powdered sugar and lemon juice together in a small bowl.
  • Pour lemon glaze over the muffins.

Notes

Store muffins in an air-tight container for 3-4 days. If your glaze is too thin, add additional powdered sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.
