How to Make Lemon Glaze

These lemon poppy seed muffins are moist and yummy enough to enjoy as they are, but for an extra burst of sweetness, try my easy lemon glaze recipe!

Following the ingredients list at the bottom of the post, place confectioners’ sugar in a small bowl or measuring cup; stir in lemon juice.

Your lemon glaze should be thick but pourable. Add more sugar or lemon juice to achieve the desired consistency, then drizzle the glaze over muffins.

Garnish your muffins with lemon zest for some extra flair!
