Fantastic Bake-a-Long – Muffins

Thank you for organizing the first ever Fantastic Bake-a-Long Tracy @It’s a T-Sweets Day!

This was a lot of fun! Even though I just made the To Die For Blueberry Muffins last weekend I wanted to Bake-a-Long-Again!

I did change it up a little bit though.

I made Raspberry Lemon Muffins!

I used the exact same recipe but added the zest and juice of one large lemon and used fresh raspberries instead of blueberries.

****Special note on the blueberry muffin recipe – the batter will be VERY THICK!*****

raspberry lemon muffin 4They were very good – but not to die for. Unless you like your muffins a little on the tart and tangy side. Β Slap some honey and some butter on there and it’s all good!

I only ate half a muffin because I found them to be a little too tangy plusΒ I have been low carb since January and I’ve almost reached my goal weight – but hubby who loves some tart fruit thought they were great! The next time I make these I will be increasing the sugar a little to balance the raspberry and lemon.

So Tracy – What are we baking next?? I can’t wait to find out what you have in mind!

Thanks for reading!

    • The batter will be very very thick Jan!! Don’t worry it’s supposed to be! Also these are Jumbo muffins so I baked them almost 10 minutes longer than the recipe calls for. πŸ˜€

  1. Those look delicious! And I like tart, but like you I’m trying to reduce my carbs, so I will not get to try them out (there’s no one else here to eat them, unless I feed them to my Yorkie).

    • I’m lucky that hubby is more than happy to eat them all. I’m also glad that they were a little too tart for my taste – otherwise it would have been a very very difficult to resist! My trick for not eating most carby foods that I cook is to put onions in it – I hate them. Doesn’t work with muffins though LOL πŸ˜€

    • Oh goodness – (hands Puff a tissue) wipe that up before you short out your keyboard! Your haunted oven would probably refuse to open its door to let you take them out so it could devour the muffins itself! By the way – I absolutely adore Cob’s blog!! She makes me laugh and makes me write the weirdest things!! I love it! πŸ˜€

  2. They look yummy. I will take one with a cup of coffee please and I brought Tupperware so I can take a few with me for later too. 😊

  3. These sound yummy but like you, probably too tart for me. I just finished up one orange cranberry ones that were punch you in the mouth tart so I think I’ll hold off on fruity things for awhile!
