LOL Muffins…………

Lemon, yes. Orange yes. Lime, yes. I love citrus anything. To me, there is nothing that smells as good as freshly grated zest from lemons, oranges and limes. Ahhhhhh, I just love that smell.

I make an orange muffin that is just heavenly.  But I decided to add some other citrus flavors this time. So, thus the LOL  muffin….lemon, orange and lime. These are so good. I sprinkled them before baking, with a mixture of the 3 fruit zests and sugar. YUM!

These are super easy to whip up and I think you will love them. They must be healthy, right? Full of vitamin C? Hmmm, I think we’ll just go with that.

LOL Muffins (lemon, orange, lime)

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup orange juice
1 Tblsp milk
1/3 cup oil
1 egg
2 Tblsp fresh grated zest of orange, lemon and lime

Fruit Sugar
3 Tblsp granulated sugar
1 Tblsp of a mixture of Lemon, orange and lime zest
Mix together with a fork till well mixed

Heat oven to 375. Lightly spray muffin pan (bottoms only) with non stick spray, or lightly grease with oil. You can use baking cups if you prefer.
In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the orange juice, oil, milk, zests and egg. Add the wet to the dry flour mixture. Stir JUST until dry stuff is moistened. It’s ok if your mixture has lumps…..it should. Lumps are good. Fill the cups 3/4 full. If you are using the orange sugar topping, sprinkle on top of muffins and bake for approx. 17 minutes for the extra large muffins and 12-14 minutes for the regular size . Check with a toothpick cuz you DONT want dry muffins. Blekh. Cool just for a bit in the pan. Remove and enjoy.
Makes 5 very large muffins, or 8 regular size.
