Spending time in the kitchen is one of the best ways I know how to relax. Since a crafting friend shared the recipe, I've made these traditional muffins with a spectacular glaze more times that I can count.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  • GLAZE:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, oil and extracts. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over warm muffins. Serve immediately.
