Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I learned two new things today.

The first is that I love lemon poppy seed muffins. I'd never been tempted to make them before because they just didn't seem like something I'd like, for some reason. But this mix was a freebie so it gave me a good reason to try something new. When I ordered my last round of supplies from King Arthur Flour, they included this mix for free.
I guess it's a little reward to me for spending so much money there (kinda like frequent flour miles?)

I substituted buttermilk for the regular milk listed on the directions, and I decided to add in a half teaspoon of this flavoring that I also just received from King Art.

I'm going to attempt to make a whole grain version of this muffin in the future. In Googling for such a recipe, I discovered the second new thing I learned today. Eating poppy seeds can make your drug test positive. Therefore, these muffins that were supposed to go to work with hubby tomorrow, are now going to be staying home with me. I don't need to be responsible for getting his coworkers in trouble!

Guess I'll make them brownies instead. REGULAR brownies though... not the "funny" kind.

I love lemon poppyseed muffins! This is the recipe my mom always made. I need to make it with whole wheat next time though!

Thanks for the link Steph. I think that recipe looks like a great one to try with whole wheat... maybe whole wheat pastry flour?
