Topped with a sweet and simple lemon glaze, these Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are quick, easy, and delicious without visiting a bakery shop! Get ready to experience bakery-style muffins with tall, fluffy tops and a crown of citrus perfection.
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, soda, and poppy seeds. Set aside. In a separate bowl, muddle sugar with fresh lemon zest until fragrant and juicy.
Add softened butter cubes and whisk by hand or with an electric mixer on low-medium speed for 2 minutes.
Mix in eggs one at a time, followed by vanilla extract and yogurt.
Gently combine the dry and wet ingredients with a spatula until just mixed. Avoid overmixing to prevent dense and tough muffins.
Fill muffin tins almost to the top and bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes until the tops turn golden brown.
Add the lemon glaze after the muffins have cooled. Enjoy!
