How to Make Lime Poppy Seed Bread / Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Prepare pan (loaf, mini loaf, or muffin) with nonstick spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and lime zest. (Sanding sugar works great for this, but granulated may be used.) Stir well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, lime zest, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  4. 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.
  5. Spread into prepared pan(s). Dip a rubber spatula in water and smooth out the top of batter. Sprinkle with prepared lime-zest sugar. ALTERNATIVE: Sprinkle with sweetened shredded coconut . Press into batter.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 20-35 minutes (depends on size/type of pan) or until top is golden and toothpick comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool completely.
