I’ve had calamansi muffins on the brain for three days now, ever since I saw this hack of the Real Coffee Boracay muffins on Pepper.ph. So I thought I’d finally bake them today, regardless of my husband’s comments.
My friend Trisha had baked them a couple days ago, and she said that next time, she’d add a little more calamansi — so naturally, being armed with this exciting piece of intel, I was all “AHA! ME TOO!!!”
And ummm… I think we can all guess how THAT turned out.
Hehe. So I guess my diet is safe after all, because I can only eat about two bites at a time before I go off rushing to take a shot of SALT or something to counteract the taste.
Lesson learned: Don’t be a rebel. Just follow the recipe. And if you were too lazy to click through to the Pepper.ph site, here it is:
Real Coffee Boracay Calamansi Muffins (Pepper.ph Hack)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup calamansi (NOT 1/2 CUP!!! Trust me)
Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Mix together milk and calamansi in a bowl, set aside.
Cream butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes.
Add eggs one at a time and mix well.
Add in milk mixture and flour mixture.
Mix until well blended, don’t over mix.
