Sweet & Savory Thursday ~~ Poppy Seed Muffins


  • 3 eggs - beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. butter flavoring
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 tsp. almond flavoring
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. poppy seeds


  • Mix all liquid ingredients in mixing bowl on medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in dry ingredients and mix well until smooth.
  • Pour into greased muffin tins or paper baking cups.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Makes 12 large or 30 small muffins (cupcake size).


  • The real secret to this recipe is the butter flavoring.
  • I prefer to use canola oil rather than vegetable oil in this recipe.
  • The muffins are very moist and tasty!
  • These are my grandchildren's favorites.
  • They freeze well, so if it works out better for you to use just a portion of the muffins initially, you will have some for later for guests who drop in unexpectedly.
  • The butter flavoring can be a bit of a challenge to locate, but I have been able to score a bottle when needed at Fred Meyer stores.

Happy Reading & Enjoy these muffins!
