Dry ingredients first.
Preheat the oven to 180°C, prepare the muffin pan and fit the molds with paper muffin cups. If you use a silicone mould, prepare it on the side. (This does not require greasing or lining with paper molds.)
In a large bowl, first mix the sugar and lemon zest. Gently mix these two ingredients together with your fingers to give the sugar a nice lemony fragrance. Then add all the remaining dry ingredients, i.e. flour, baking powder, poppy seeds and a pinch of salt.

Finish the batter.
In another large bowl, mix together the eggs, ricotta, yogurt, butter and vanilla extract. For the butter, make sure it is melted but not hot. Whisk until blended.
Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and, with the whisk or a rubber spatula, gently but quickly stir to blend. If there are a few lumps in the batter, don't worry about it, nothing is wrong. It's better than over mixing the batter.

Bake it!
Divide the batter into the 12 muffin tins you have prepared and bake in a preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes or until the tops of the muffins are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean. Enjoy!
