    To say good-bye to January, I made yogurt muffins with glaze. Feel free to use any fruit yogurt you like, not necessarily key lime, and pair it with the same fruit glaze. I was so distracted while making those ( dreaming of chocolate and more chocolate… ) that I cut the limes to juice them and then realized I didn’t grate the zest. Bummer! It would give them a deeper flavor. Still, the muffins turned out great!

Yogurt Muffins with Lime Glaze

for the muffins:
5 oz. key lime yogurt ( or any other flavor yogurt )
1/2 c sugar
2 limes
5 Tbsp butter
2 c all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 c milk

for the glaze:
1/2 c powdered sugar
2 Tbsp lime juice

Fill your muffin tins with liners or grease them. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Grate the zest of both limes and then juice one of them.
In a small saucepan, mix together 1/4 cup of sugar, lime zest and 2 Tbsp of lime juice. Heat to boil. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir until smooth. Set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder, soda and salt ).
In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, eggs with milk. Add to butter mixture. Mix well.
Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Divide batter among the muffin tins, filling 3/4 full.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in pans for 2 minutes, then place on a cooling rack to cool completely before glazing.
Prepare glaze by whisking together powdered sugar and lime juice. Glaze the muffins.

Enjoy!

  1. I'm assuming that the yogurt is one of the wet ingredients but you left that out when combining eggs and milk. That said these sound wonderful. I especially like the glaze which can be transformed into so many other flavors. I've never done that but like the way it sounds. Thanks for sharing.

  2. A lime muffin sounds so good! I love chocolate too. :)
    I have a serious sweet tooth but I have had to change certain things lately. I can't wait to check out your other recipes.
    Please stop by my blog, I have a surprise for you there.

  3. I really like citrus and yogurt when it comes to muffins-great flavor and texture. Great item for breakfast or anytime-yum!
    Looking forward to the chocolate post!

  4. Glad it worked well even without the zest. Look forward to more chocolate recipes. I personally prefer dark chocolate and like eating it on its own. Of course I enjoy it in cakes, cupcakes, muffins, bread, ice cream, candy…. err almost anything with chocolate really :)

  5. Haha, dreaming of chocolate…love it! I love a nice piece of dark chocolate. It satisfies my sweet tooth and I don't need much.
    I love key lime flavor in these muffins, they look absolutely divine.

  6. Your cupcake looks lovely! I love key limes but I don't think so I can find key lime yogurt over here in France. But I'll try with lemon yogurt. Thanks for sharing your amazing recipes. Have lovely day. :)

  7. These cupcakes look seriously delicious – soft moist and perfectly divine :D

    Cheers
