TWD: Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins
This week Tuesdays With Dorie made Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins – an absolutely perfect choice for this time of year. Spring (and the fruits that accompany it) aren’t quite here and these bright muffins are a nice reminder that it’s on its way. My muffins are a little darker since, per Nancy’s suggestion on the Problems & Question site, I used half whole wheat flour. I didn’t have any lemon extract, so I added some zest instead, which I think worked fine (I wasn’t going to buy a bottle of lemon extract to use a ¼ teaspoon). I thought these muffins had the perfect amount of sweetness for a breakfast treat and would happily make them again.
This recipe rated an 8 for Deliciousness and a 2 for Effort, for an EDR of 4. Many thanks to Lauryn of Bella Baker for a splendid selection. You can find the recipe here on Lauryn’s site, along with many other beautiful treats, and check out the TWD site to see if the rest of the group liked these as much as I did.
