Meyer Lemon Chip Mini Muffins

Meyer Lemon Chip Mini Muffins

My local market had some really beautiful, ripe and juicy Meyer lemons so I purchased a few without having anything in mind that I wanted to use it for.  I think it was more of an impulse buy.  It was just too pretty! I baked a batch of these muffins; I figured chocolate goes with everything right? I’m more used to muffins with a crumbly texture, as I think that’s how you differentiate between muffins and cupcakes.  Cupcakes have a more cake-like texture.  These muffins were not as crumbly but airy, which was a pleasant surprise.  You can taste the chocolate and the lemon is just in the background.  I baked them in a mini muffin pan and they turned out so darn cute! I normally prefer baked goods with coffee but these would be wonderful with tea.  Enjoy!

Meyer Lemon Ricotta Muffins

Meyer Lemon Ricotta Muffins

I had a couple of Meyer lemons that weren’t looking too vibrant so I decided to use them up in today’s baking.  I also had some ricotta cheese as well.  These two combined really do make a delicious batch of muffins.  I was a bit worried that my batter was a bit on the thick side but in the end, it makes a very dense but airy muffin.  The combination of the Meyer lemon, ricotta cheese and almond/almond extract really do marry well.  If you like lemon muffins —you will love these!

Honey Meyer Lemon Olive Oil Muffins

I’ve been wanting a KitchenAid Stand Mixer for the longest time.  Chris promised I can have one when we moved to our new house.  And he’s a man of his word. (Thank you sweetie! :))  I found a really good deal at Costco last week and picked one up.  I finally broke it in today and made a batch of honey meyer lemon olive oil muffins.  It took less than five minutes to mix once all the ingredients are in there.  I can’t believe I went on this long without this mixer! It’s totally worth it and my favorite appliance in the kitchen right now.  I look forward to making more goodies soon!
