Poppy Seed Muffins from Stardew Valley
I am back!
I have been playing a lot of stardew valley recently and cant stop, it is such a great feelgood game. The first sight of the poppy muffin in the game made me want to try and make it myself since it looks so delicious, and it was!
In the game the only ingredients you need for the muffins are flour, sugar and a poppy but I (ofc) added other ingredients and lemon since the combination of poppy seeds and citrus is to tasty to miss.
Lemon poppy seed muffin recipe, makes around 12-15 normal sized muffins
100 grams Butter (melted)
1,5 dl sugar
2 dl milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 dl wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp blue poppy seeds
zest from 2 lemons and juice from 1
Start by preheating the oven to 175 degrees celsius. Then line a cupcake tin or baking tray with cupcake cases.
Whisk together egg and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Add the melted butter, milk, vanilla essence and lemon zest and whisk until combined.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined, then add the poppy seeds and lemon juice and again, stir until combined.
The batter is quite loose so I recommend pouring it into the cupcake cases. They should be filled about ¾ way up.
Bake It in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted to the center of a muffin comes out clean.
These muffins came out so well, they are fluffy, moist and tastes refreshing of the lemon. I could have added more poppy seeds because you don´t notice them in the taste that much, next time I make ill try with 3 tbsp poppy seeds instead of 2.
I will try posting more recipes and stuff In the future, thank you so much for reading. ^^ Now ill go back to playing stardew valley and make some more muffins there and give them to Penny and Leah…
