How To Make lime poppy seed bread / muffins

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400° F. Prepare pan (loaf, mini loaf, or muffin) with nonstick spray.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together yogurt; cooled, melted butter; egg; lime juice; and poppy seeds. Fold into dry ingredients; stir just until combined. Do not over mix. Batter will be thick.
