  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 ½ cups lemon filling


  • Preheat the oven to 400º.
  • Spray or use cupcake liners on 12 muffin tins.
  • In a large bowl, mix the sugar and lemon peel.
  • Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds just until mixed. Do not overmix. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sour cream eggs, vanilla extract, lemon extract, lemon juice, and melted butter. Add this to the flour mixture and mix just until well-blended. Do not overmix.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tins.
  • Bake at 400º for 18 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Immediately remove the muffins from the tin and cool them on a wire rack.
  • When muffins are cooled, use a sharp knife to cut a circle into the top of the muffin, going down about half-way in the muffin. Remove the top.
  • Fill the cavity with lemon filling.
  • Cut off the cake part of the top piece you cut out and replace the cut-out circle top over the filling, pushing it down a little into the filling.
  • Store the muffins covered in the refrigerator.
