Quick mix fruit muffins

    35 minutes

    The rule of thumb with muffins is not to overmix the batter. It is best to stir the ingredients with a wooden spoon only until just combined; that way, the muffins will be light and well risen.

    Used different ingredients. I used fresh pineapple cut into small chunks (with the juice squeezed out) instead of the fruit that was suggested and instead of lemon rind I used desicated coconut. I didn't dust them with the 2 Tablespoons of Icing sugar.  -  16 Nov 2008


    Yesterday I made 5 different kinds of muffins/quick bread recipes and this was my husbands favourite of the lot. Nice and moist with good texture and flavor.  -  16 Nov 2008
