2cups All purpose flour
1/4cup Oil (sunflower or canola)
2tbsp Lemon juice
1tsp Lemon zest
1tsp Baking powder
1tsp Baking soda

Preheat the oven to 350F..Sieve the flour with baking soda and baking powder,add the poppy seeds and keep aside...Beat the sugar,butter and oil until the sugar gets well dissolved, immediately add the buttermilk,lemon juice,lemon zest and vanilla extract, whisk everything well..
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix it well with a spatula,batter will be quite thick but dont overmix the batter,else ur muffins will turn hard...Drop enough batter to the silicon muffin tray and bake for 20-25minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean..
