Peachy Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

September 3, 2015Teresa

Peachy Lemon Poppyseed Muffins are terrific. These luscious muffins are filled with lovely fresh peaches, lots of lemon juice and zest, and poppy seeds. Then they’re iced with a lemon icing. These muffins have a lot going for them and are a great holiday breakfast or whenever you want the taste of a good muffin. (I enjoy muffins for dessert!)

I was trying to use up boatloads of fresh peaches in mid July when our peach trees were ready for harvest. I ended up baking a lot of cookies, muffins and cakes before I finally had to stop and start packing. We sold our house and moved into a rental home while our new house is being built. I actually never got to use up all of our peaches because we had too much else going on.

Peachy Lemon Poppyseed Muffins have awesome flavor. Peaches, lemon and poppyseeds make up most of the flavor in these muffins. I made these with Greek yogurt, but Icelandic yogurt will work just as well. The lovely lemon icing puts these muffins over the top! If you enjoy peaches, the delicious taste of these muffins is all you could ask for.

Give them a try the next time you’re hankering for a sweet bread or muffin for breakfast. Ummmmmm.

I initially posted this recipe in September 2015. At that time, I added cinnamon to the batter and the icing. I thought afterwards, maybe it had too much going on in the recipe. I remade the recipe in June 2020. This time I decided to leave off the cinnamon and just flavor the muffins with lemon, peaches and poppyseeds. I actually enjoyed the recipe a lot more. My sister-in-law sampled one and she loved it.

Toning the recipe down by omitting the cinnamon made the lemon and peach flavors pop. The muffins were spectacular this way.

      Hi, Tiffany, this muffin recipe has lovely lemon and cinnamon flavors. But if you’re not used to having them together you may want to omit the cinnamon (except in the icing to give a hint of flavor). Just saying….I liked it this way but realize everyone doesn’t have the same palate as I do! 🙂
