DIRECTIONS

  • Grate the zest of the lime and set aside.
  • Cut the outer pith from the lime and then carefully slide the knife under one membrane and gently remove a segment of lime flesh.
  • Continue until all lime flesh has been extracted into a bowl for later use.
  • NB. This isn't as hard as it sounds as the lime membranes are quite fibrous. Alternatively you could just squeeze the limes and use the juice.
  • Now sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
  • In a separate large mixing bowl, mix together the egg, sugar, milk, butter and vanilla.
  • Return the dry ingredients to the sifter and sift again over the egg mixture (Delia says this double sifting is essential, and hey, Delia always knows best!).
  • Quickly fold the flour into the egg mixture, taking no more than 15 seconds, as over-mixing will prevent them rising.
  • Add the lime zest, lime flesh, white chocolate and coconut (or whatever variation you prefer), combining with minimum stirring.
  • Spoon into muffin trays and bake at 200C on a high shelf.
  • Large muffins should take 30 minutes, smaller mini-muffins only about 20 minutes.
  • Makes 6 large muffins or 20 mini-muffins.
