Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Muffins are so adaptable and make great portable food. This version was made with Big S in mind, since she loves a zing to her food. My version is topped with a lemon syrup but equally you could add a lemony water icing  if preferred.

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan) warning: contains soya and gluten

makes 12

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2/3rds cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free spread, melted
  • 2/3rds cup oat or soya milk
  • 1 cup soya yogurt
  • zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 3 tbsps poppyseeds

for the lemon syrup

  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsps caster sugar

– Preheat the oven to 190 Degrees Centigrade/Gas Mark 5

– In a bowl mix together the oat milk, soya yogurt, vanilla and melted dairy-free spread. Set aside.

– Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the sugar.

– Make a well in the centre and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix until combined (make sure you don’t over mix).
