Orange Poppy Seed Muffins

  • ½ cup plant-based milk
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • zest of one orange
  • 1 cup vegan sour cream
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Orange Glaze


For the Orange Poppy Seed Muffins

  • Heat your oven to 350°F/175°C and prepare your muffin pans (spray with vegetable spray or line with papers).
  • Make vegan buttermilk by stirring together soy milk and vinegar. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, cream the butter and sugar with a mixer. Add the buttermilk, vegan sour cream, and orange zest. Mix again with your mixer until well-combined.
  • In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, poppy seeds, salt, baking powder, and baking soda). Add to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Drop the batter into prepared muffin compartments and bake for approximately 20 minutes. A tester inserted in the center of a muffin should come out clean. When the muffins are done, remove them from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

For the Orange Glaze

  • While you’re waiting for the muffins to cool, stir together the powdered sugar and orange juice. Don’t worry if the mixture is a little runny – that’s what we’re looking for. Drizzle the glaze over the muffins.
