TWD: Lemon Poppyseed Muffins with Strawberry Jam

by Holly on January 18, 2011

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.

Strawberry jam sounds like a great addition! I love lemon and strawberry together so I may have to try. Great job on your muffins!

Great idea to add something sweet to the middle! These muffins are wonderful, Im glad you liked them too!

I have made these yummy muffins several times but never with jam. I think blueberry sounds like a good option next time. Have a great day.

Beautiful photos! I added strawberry jam, too – so yum! πŸ™‚

My mom used to get us the mega huge lemon poppyseed muffins from Costco and they were always my favorite. These look way better though, especially with that jam. I'm pretty sure I'd be a muffin muncher too if I had these babies on the counter.

Ooh good call on the jam! They look fabulous!

What a fun treat to find jam hidden inside these beautiful muffins!

Katrina January 19, 2011 at 2:26 pm

Your muffins look great and I love the idea of jam inside!

I love the way your muffins look with the jammy centers and beautiful thick drizzle on top. Just stunning!

I love lemon poppy seed muffins and haven’t found a great recipe to date. This may just be the one.

Do pop over and say hello.
