This is a good start for a muffin. I made a batch yesterday, 1st batch was just not "limey" enough for my set of "testers" (LOL). I added double the Key Lime juice and disected a lime, adding the pulp and lots of rind and I also added a bit more sugar. 2nd batch was EXCELLENT! Its recipe has been put in my muffin files for my shop. I dont like to 'dis' on any recipes, there are alot of variables at work, fresh lime not fresh enough, too much humidity or what have you. This IS/WAS a great recipe! TRY IT!! Thanks NurseDi
Good easy recipe - I used 1/2 cup of fresh key lime juice, added a little extra zest, and subbed one of the eggs for applesauce. Not too sweet and just the right amount of tart for us!
Delicious!! Possibly coconut would have been nice but they are great without - first time I've used the Nellie & Joe's Famous Key Lime juice we brought back from Florida
