I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Raspberry Filled Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Lemony muffins with a pop of raspberry.

2 cups flour
3 tbsps poppyseeds
1 - 1  1/2 tbsps lemon zest (2 lemons)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsps vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tsp almond extract
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (vanilla, lemon or berry)
3 tbsps fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup raspberry jam

Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl mix the vegetable oil, egg, almond extract, sugar, yogurt, lemon juice and milk together.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until combined. 

Line a muffin tin with papers and drop a big heaping tablespoon of batter in each. Dollop about 2 tsps of jam in each and spoon on the remaining batter.

Bake at 350 F for 17-20 minutes. 
Cool no more than 10 minutes before removing to a rack to cool completely as any jam oozing out will stick to your pan.
Put your feet up and enjoy one with a cup of tea.
