Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
The key to really nice, really yellow lemon muffins? Lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon extract, and lemon bits. What are lemon bits you ask? Small pieces of lemon that are candied and dehydrated. When stirred and baked into the muffin batter, they rehydrate and become little sweet lemon chips. A trick to get lemon muffins more yellow without adding artificial food coloring is to stir in a little dry turmeric in the batter. A little turmeric goes a long way so you won't add enough to taste is but just enough to color it.
