  • 225 g Plain flour
  • 2 tsps Baking powder
  • 1 Medium Lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 Medium Lime, juice and zest
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100 g Caster sugar
  • 100 grams Honey
  • 65 ml Olive oil, use light olive oil for a milder taste
  • 60 g Icing Sugar, for the glaze
  • Half a Lime, juice
  • Half a Lemon, juice

Preheat oven 190 deg C.


In a large bowl lightly beat the eggs, and then add the honey. Whisk until combined.


Then add the oil and juice of the lemon and lime and whisk again until all the ingredients are combined.


In a medium bowl sift together the flour and baking powder.


Then add the zest of the lemon and zest of the lime (saving a tiny smidgen of each to decorate the top of the muffins at the end) and the caster sugar.


Pour half the flour mixture into the egg mixture bowl and fold with a wooden spoon until just combined.


Add the rest of the flour and repeat. Do not over mix.


Fill the muffin cases with the batter until 3/4 full. Then place in the preheated oven, on the middle shelf for 22-25 mins, or until a skewer or toothpick comes out clean and slightly browned on top.


For the glaze: While these are in the oven, pop the sifted icing sugar, lime and lemon juices in a medium bowl. Mix until smooth.


Leave the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


While still warm, pour the glaze over the muffins, as much or as little as your heart desires and then sprinkle with some zest.
