  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup nonfat lemon yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp lemon extract
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup slivered almonds


  • Preheat the oven to 400 °F.
  • Grease with cold butter a 12-cup muffin tin.
  • Sift the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, lemon zest, lemon extract, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the milk, oil, lemon yogurt, and egg together.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture in three steps. Take care not to over-mix the batter.
  • Bake for 16 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • While muffins are baking, prepare the glaze.
  • Stir confectioners' sugar with the lemon juice until smooth.
  • Muffins should be springy to the touch and a toothpick stuck in will come out clean.
  • Drizzle with glaze.
  • Let cool on rack for 3 minutes and remove from muffin tin.


Optional - 1/8 cup sliced almonds can be added when glazing for artistic flair.
