There are so many Lemon Poppy Seed variations; loafs with glaze, muffins, cakes, bundt cakes, etc. but in my opinion, Lemon Poppy Seed Cupcakes are superior. Does this mean I’m swearing off a lemon loaf with glaze? HELL NO. But it does mean that I will reach for the cupcake first.
This recipe is simple, delicious, and fun to make. If you want to put your own special twist on these by all means please do, creativeness is my favorite part about baking, but I do promise you that if you follow this recipe to a tee you will have the most delicious, refreshing and mouth-watering cupcakes ever. So either way it’s a win win.
I used the most adorable cupcake liners by Wilton that I purchased from Target. I think they really added that beautiful pop of color that these cupcakes deserve.
You can find them here. Of course any cupcake liner will do but there’s just something about floral cupcake liners holding a Lemon Poppy Seed Cupcake that just makes my heart happy.
Decorating is typically my favorite step. For these cupcakes I knew going into it that I wanted the frosting, decorating process to be super simple. They’re already so bright and beautiful, I didn’t want to take away from their natural beauty. Listen to me gushing over cupcakes, yikes.Yum
