You know that old saying about when life gives you lemons? Well, as much as I love lemonade I think I love lemon poppyseed muffins just as much - maybe even a little more. I have made this recipe I few times before now, but had never taken any pictures. Since they were chosen by Betsy at A Cup of Sweetness for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe it certainly wasn't a hardship to make them again.
For some reason which thoroughly escapes me though, I had never bothered to do one of the versions Dorie suggests in the book and fill them with jam. I only had strawberry on hand and probably didn't add quite enough, but my goodness, let me tell you, there may very well be no going back! We literally gobbled them up and I had to hide them at one point in the day because Aidan was sneaking in the kitchen and being a total muffin muncher. I really can't wait to make these again and use the seedless raspberry jam I just got. If you haven't tried the muffins with a jam center, or even just put some on after baking, I highly recommend you give it a chance.
