Another recipe from Connolly's book, 500 Cupcakes and Muffins. I really love this book!! The recipes are so easy to be practised. I often make this muffins for breakfast or having a last minute guest (",).
Citrus Yoghurt Muffins
(Recipe by Fergal Connolly)
200g (8 oz) plain flour
175g caster sugar (I only used 150 g)
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
1 tbsp grated orange zest
1 tbsp grated lime zest
1 tbsp baking powder
pinch of salt
225 ml (8 fl oz) fat free plain yoghurt (I used 250ml flavoured-yoghurt with real fruits)
115ml (4 fl oz) sunflower oil
1 lightly beaten egg
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a 12-cups muffin tin.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, lemon zest, lime zest, baking powder and salt. I suggest to put the zests altogether in milk mixture instead of flour mixture. Because it won’t blended well with the dry ingredients. In a large bowl, beat the yoghurt, oil and egg until well blended. Add the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix. Don’t worry about the lump, it will be just fine when u bake it.
Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove tin from the oven and cool for 5 minuten. Then remove the muffins and serve warm.
