Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

This little recipe came out of a Gooseberry Patch cookbook.  It’s the perfect little spring/summer muffin.  I have a deep love affair with all things pumpkin and lemon….pumpkin for fall and lemon for spring.  This recipe is so quick, so simple and so versatile, you’ll be having muffins in minutes.
Shopping List
1 box white cake mix
1 small box lemon pudding
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup water
1/3 cup veggie oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line two 12 cup muffin tins with liners.  In a large mixing bowl stir together cake mix, pudding mix and poppy seeds.  In a separate bowl, blend together with an electric mixer, eggs, water and oil.  Slowly add the wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and stir together with a spoon.  Fill muffin tins with batter and bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Let muffins rest in pan about 5 minutes before removing.
Do you see all of the ways we can Mix and Match this recipe?  Swap out your cake mix and your pudding, throw in other add-ins (like chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts) and you have completely different muffin recipes.  Easy.  Easy.  Easy.

    Thank you! Literally, yesterday I was thinking…Can I make 'muffins' out of a cake mix? Guess I know what I'm making for breakfast this week 🙂
