Citrus and poppy yoghurt muffins
200g plain flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
175g castor sugar
zest of 1 orange
zest of 1 lemon
zest of 1 lime
3/4 cup of plain low fat yoghurt I used greek style
1/3 cup of sunflower/vege oil. Make sure it doesn't have a strong flavour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon of poppy seeds
Heat your oven to 200 degrees and either grease a muffin tin or use muffin cases.
Mix the yoghurt, oil and egg in a large bowl until well combined. In a separate bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, sugar, zest and poppy seeds. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix them together until just combined. The important thing is not to beat it too well. Muffins don't need to be beaten till light and fluffy like cupcakes. Pop your mix into the muffin cases/pan and cook for 20 mins. They will go golden on top.
Recipe makes 12. Next time I am definitely doubling it!
