Kaffir Lime & Blueberry Cupcakes

What to do when you have a never ending supply of lemons, lime and kaffir limes?

Experiment with food… and more different types of food!

I was talking to Daph about what to do with lemons and baking, she directed me to the cupcakes she recently made here, which was a variation of PaleOMG’s recipe

I’ve made my own variation as I am using kaffir limes, which are much stronger in flavour. took me a couple of tries but we got there eventually x) Recipe below!

Makes: 10 cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Coconut (70g)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 6 small Eggs (230g)
  • 1/3 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1/3 cup Kaffir Lime Juice
  • 1 cup Frozen Blueberries

Method:

  1. Sift dry ingredients together
  2. Blend up wet ingredients
  3. Add wet to dry and mix together
  4. Fold berries in last
  5. Scoop into moulds and bake for 20-25 mins. I let them brown up some before I take them out

Optional:

As they rest, take a skewer and poke a few holes in the top, use a teaspoon to pour some leftover juice into the muffins – this will let it soak up some fresh flavour 🙂 only an option, I like a good zesty flavour in it.

Substitutions:

  • Blueberries – for any kind of berries you like
  • Kaffir Lime – if you tried using normal lemons, I am guessing you will need more lemon juice – Daph’s recipe suggests 2 lemons, you can try that 🙂
