Lemon Poppyseed Muffins?

jeannieh Nov 9, 2007 05:53 AM

A friend's birthday is coming up, and he wants lemon poppyseed muffins. I'm in a dorm situation with no oven (boo), so baking them myself is not an option. Where can I find the best lemon poppyseed muffins in Boston? (I walked by The Spotted Apron on Cambridge St. the other night and saw lemon poppyseed ginger muffins - does anyone know if those are any good?)

    I don't know if you have transportation but IMHO the hands down best muffins in the Boston area are made by the Gingerbread Construction Co. They have several stores but all of them are in suburbs. The one I go to is in Winchester and I can confirm that their Lemon Poppy Seeds are terrific.

      I would completely agree. The commuter rail goes to Winchester...

      They have a yummy lemon poppyseed cake at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge (possibly in the South End too).

        Petsi's Pies in Cambridge (across from O'Sullivans) has (sometimes--selection changes daily) lemon poppyseed muffins. Haven't tried those, specifically, but everything I've gotten there has been very good.

          The Buttery makes yummy ones! They'd be happy to do a special order for you, too.
