  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Lightly grease the muffin cups or line with cupcake papers.
  • In a medium bowl, add the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir to combine.
  • In a mixing bowl, blend together the eggs, yogurt, lemon zest, and vegetable oil until well mixed.
  • Pour in the dry ingredients and beat just until mixed. Do not overmix the batter.
  • Spoon into the prepared muffin cups, distributing batter evenly between 12 cups.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick poked in the middle comes out clean. Do not overbake.
  • Prepare the glaze by combining the sugar and lemon juice; stir until sugar is dissolved.
  • Poke the top of the muffins with a toothpick, several times each. Spoon a teaspoon of the glaze over each of the muffins until glaze is distributed evenly on all the muffins.
  • Allow the muffins to cool in the tins for at least 10 minutes before removing them.
