Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin tins with paper liners.

In a medium bowl whisk flour, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and baking soda.

In a small bowl whisk sour cream, buttermilk and lemon juice to blend.

In a large bowl, using electric mixer, cream together sugar, butter, and lemon zest. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition until mixture is light and fluffy, occasionally scraping down sides of bowl.

Mix dry ingredients into the creamed mixture in 3 additions, alternating with 2 additions of the sour cream/buttermilk mixture. Mix just until blended. Stir in poppy seeds. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake muffins until tester inserted into center comes out clean, 20 to 22 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pans and cool on rack.

Mix together melted butter, lemon juice and enough powdered sugar to make a glaze. Drizzle or pipe glaze over tops of warm muffins.
