Muffins must be one of the easiest things to make once you stick to the rules. It’s a basic method of dry ingredients whisked, then wet ingredients whisked, next add them together and here’s the key …. don’t over mix! That’s the one. 🙂
These muffins are probably a bit more for adult tastes as they are a low sugar recipe or kids who don’t like particularly sweet things (do they exist??). They’re not really sweet and the lemon adds a nice touch so if you are making them for little people, you could leave out the lemon and add some vanilla extract.
There’s no special equipment needed for these muffins. I love that!! Just my whisk and large spoon. Hurray!!
There’s nothing nicer than a light, fluffy muffin and when it’s lemon flavoured, well it’s lifted to another level. Now the key to light and fluffy muffins is nothing big or exciting. It’s restraint! Put that spoon down and stop mixing! Your batter should be thick and lumpy. That’s it. That’s the big secret and it’s difficult as you’re so tempted to give another couple of mixes but hold back …. I promise you’ll thank me 🙂
If you’re looking for a bake with a massive burst of lemon, then this is the one for you! It’s literally zinging all the way from the oven to your plate. Adding the coconut just gives it a fabulous edge and if you want to emphasise the coconut taste, then toast the coconut used for the topping.
