Blackberry Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Blackberry Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I have had more lemonade in the past two months than I’ve had in probably my whole life. Mostly because I’m not drinking alcohol right now (sad, I know). The one thing that makes me super excited is when the lemonade has some other kind of flavor: strawberry, raspberry, etc. Β Because lemon goes so well with berries, I was inspired to swirl in some blackberry preserves in to my latest batch of lemon poppy seed muffins. And they were amazing.

Because I am such a generous person :), I have decided to share the recipe with you. I modified this recipe for a smaller yield and then added the fruit. You could just as easily substitute the blackberry preserves for whatever fruit flavor strikes your fancy.
