Lime Muffins Recipe

I bake muffins every Sunday morning, so I'm always trying different ingredients to make them interesting. These citrus muffins are my husband's favorite.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime peel


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first four ingredients. In another bowl, beat the eggs, milk, oil, lime juice and peel. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

"I loved these! I agree they needed a little something on top. I made a glaze with 2 Tbsp lime juice and 1 cup powdered sugar and drizzled it on top! They were superb! I will make them again!"

"I used lime juice and orange zest for a nice citrus combination. The batter is thick, but the muffins come out moist enough."
