We all enjoy a rich chocolate muffin with our hot cup of cappuccino but sometimes we want something zesty and a little bit savoury. These lemon and poppy seed muffins are a true classic breakfast and tea time snack that is always on a menu and is very easy to make at home when you’re in the mood for baking.

The recipe is simple to put together and will come out light and fluffy with that iconic zesty flavour without being too sweet. You can top your muffins with some extra lemon or orange zest and some almonds for something a bit crunchy too. They taste as great as they look, making tea time and breakfast more fun.
