Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

*This one is for my sister who has been begging me for the recipe for the past few months.
If you don't have poppy seeds- no worries- just do without. My boys love, love, love these muffins! It makes a nice change from just oatmeal or pancakes. They are really quick to make, so even on school mornings I can have them ready for breakfast in just over a half hour.


Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups(180g) flour
3/4 cup (150g) sugar
2 tsp(10ml) baking powder
1/2 (2.5ml)tsp salt
1 tbsp(15ml) poppy seeds (this is one of the things that I bring back from the States, although I have seen huge bags of them at the wholesale food market)
1/3(80ml) cup oil
1 egg
1/2+(120+ml) milk
1 tbsp(15ml) lemon extract (Click here for a recipe to make your own extract)
2-3 tsp(10-15ml) lemon zest(optional- but your muffins will rock if you add it)

Directions:

Add together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.
Add poppy seeds.
Whisk together until well blended.
Measure out oil, add egg and then add milk until it gets to the 1 cup(240ml) line.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Add lemon extract and lemon zest (if using)
Stir until combined.
Fill muffin liners half full.
Bake at 200 C for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
