Poppy seed muffins

I remembered receiving an envelope of poppyseeds by mail. It was a pleasant surprise and I was even more suprised that there's 3 boxes of poppyseeds in there! Thanks F. Sad to say that since then, I've only used the seeds a couple of times, which then I was left with plenty of poppyseeds that has been sitting in the cupboard.
There shd be plenty of opportunities to use these seeds, but somehow it just did not happen. Till last nite, I was browsing thru' my recipe book and I came across a recipe that calls for poppyseeds and apple. It's a poppyseed muffin!
The recipe is really simple and straightforward... I guess muffins recipes shd be like this.
