Try something different for breakfast or with your afternoon cup of tea/coffee. Fresh Key Lime Juice works the best.

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

So good ! Made it with wheat flour and still very key lime tasty ! (stayed in oven 20-22 minutes instead of 18). I also added more key lime zest as suggest in some review. Thank you !!

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!
