Limrose Grove – a yummy recipe using limes!



Makes 12


2 cups of flour                                                                   3 tsps baking powder

¼ cup caster sugar                                                           2 eggs

¼ cup milk                                                                           1 tsp lime rind, finely grated

¼ cup lime juice                                                                                250 ml natural unsweetened yoghurt

50g butter


2 limes, juice and zest                                    ¼ cup caster sugar

Extra finely shredded lime zest and sugar crystals for decorating.


Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Line the 12 holes of a muffin tin with paper patty cases.

Into a large bowl, sift flour and baking powder. Mix in sugar. In another bowl beat the eggs, milk, lime rind, juice and yoghurt together until well combined.

Make a hole in the centre of the dry ingredients. Melt and pour in butter, then add the egg mixture and mix until the flour has been moistened but not over-stirred.

Three quarter fill the paper cases.

Bake for 15 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and spring back when you lightly touch them.

To make the glaze, heat the lime juice with the sugar in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves, taking care not to burn it.

Pour syrup over muffins while they are still hot. You can either sprinkle with sugar crystals and lime zest or make a lime icing for top.
