Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

by postroad on January 15, 2013

Good Morning! Today I have a quick recipe to share!! But first a ‘lil background warning on me in the kitchen…….

I am NOT a pro baker cook lady. Seriously….. if it wasn’t for a big family I would probably do a great lot less of it. But like so many other things in life I’ve found that it can be an awesome way to get really creative and bless my family at the same time…..

(except for the time I exploded the eggs, doubled the salt, forgot the sweetener, no bananas in the banana bread, started the pie on fire….. yes, this list could go on and on really!!)

It’s nothing short of a miracle when a recipe I make turns out. I am a ‘missing half the ingredients and make it anyway’ kinda gal. Good thing the kiddos and hubby have learned to be VERY un-particular when it comes to good grub!

But when you re-invent / invent so many times once in a blue moon something is bound to turn out!! Which is why I decided to share this yummy muffin recipe here with you!

I made this no-sugar, high-fat. You could substitue 1 c. of sugar for the honey and stevia. Next time I make these I will cut back a bit on the butter and sour cream. But boy did they turn out rich and moist….. so then again maybe not!!!

Do you like making things in the kitchen? I have learned to…… especially since we (for the most part) skip the processed food and opt for the homemade variety!

My little sisters are my inspiration for good cooking and baking! They are super healthy and make yummy delicious things…….. when I grow up I want to be like them :) One of them even has a blog- http://www.afinninthekitchen.com/


happy baking.


p.s. I am going to be doing a fun blog sponsor special soon! If you want to be the very first to hear about it please send me an email heather@postroadvintage.com

You had me cracking up while reading this. You’ve trained up some sweet, grateful family members–so thankful to be fed, even if a few ingredients are missing. :)

These look delish! I’m a lover of lemon anything and poppyseed, too, so I’m pinning them!

I am so glad I am not the only person that has disasters in the kitchen by missing a few ingredients! Still laughing. Thank for sharing your recipe… looks yummy.

Hahha..made me laugh of all the little mistakes you made in the kitchen. Trust me. If I cooked more I would make lots more mistakes. But your cooking sounds a lot like moms..haha

I’m the same sort of cook baker lady. I’m finding myself making supper by just tossing things into my beloved cast iron skillet, saying “That looks like enough of this or that”, and simmering for a half hour. Not everything turns out as I’ve imagined but (so far) it’s all been edible. I My favorite recipes have no measurable amounts. It’s all eyeballed estimates. I have yet to make pasty or lasagna the same way twice for this reason but I was taught how to make both without using a measuring cup or spoon. I think it’s more fun to cook this way because you never know what’s going to be the result. It’s a culinary adventure.
