The triple power of lemon, lime, and orange combine to make these fluffy muffins absolutely burst with the flavors of sunshine!   Yields 12 muffins

Ingredients

Muffins

  • zest and juice of 1 lemon

  • zest and juice of 1 lime

  • zest and juice of 1 orange

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 3/4 cup oil

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Glaze

  • 1 and 1/4 cups powdered sugar

  • zest from the fruits above

  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

Prepare the Muffins

1.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Line muffin pans with paper liners and set aside.

2.

Combine the zest of the three fruits in a small bowl. Remove about a third of it to use in glaze. Add sugar to bowl and stir to distribute.

3.

In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar and zest mixture, oil, eggs, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and salt.

4.

Measure out 1/2 cup of the citrus juice and add to the bowl. (Save the rest for a different use.) Add milk and whisk to combine.

5.

Using a sturdy spoon, stir in flour until completely smooth. Pour batter into prepared muffin pans, filling each cup about three-quarters full. Bake for 16–18 minutes, until tops are set. Set aside to cool completely before glazing.

Prepare the Glaze

1.

In a small bowl, whisk to combine all ingredients.

2.

Add a few drops of water, as needed, to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled muffins.

Notes:

These muffins freeze well in an airtight container or bag.

You only need 1/2 cup if citrus juice for this recipe. If you have any leftover, you can use it somewhere else.
