Blackberry Lime Muffins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • Turbinado sugar-for sprinkling on muffins before baking

Instructions
 

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 9 paper liners or spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder.
  • 3. In a small bowl, add the sugar and lime zest. Rub sugar and zest together until fragrant. Add sugar and zest to the flour mixture. Whisk ingredients together.
  • 4. In a glass measuring cup or small bowl, mix canola oil, egg, buttermilk, lime juice, and vanilla extract together.
  • 5. Pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture. Slowly stir together, the batter will be thick. Don't over mix. Gently fold in the blackberries.
  • 6. Fill 9 muffin cups with the batter. Sprinkle each muffin with turbinado sugar.
  • 7. Bake muffins for 17-20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Let muffins cool on a cooking rack.
  • *Note-you can use frozen berries, but try to use fresh blackberries. They make these muffins extra special. This recipe only makes 9 muffins, feel free to double it.
