Citrus Yoghurt Muffins

Last year, by some freak coincidence, i found out that a fellow forum mate on a motherhood forum i have been actively a part of is actually my secondary school mate! We have not met for 17 years since we left school and we are both mothers now to sons about the same age :)

Her name is Miaofang aka Curly and this is a superb recipe i got from her.

Citrus Yoghurt Muffins

200g self raising flour
175g caster sugar
1 tbsp each of grated lemon, orange and lime zest
225ml fat-free plain yoghurt
115ml sunflower oil
1 lightly beaten egg

1. Preheat oven to 200C.
2. Combine flour, sugar, all zests, in a medium bowl. In a large bowl, beat yoghurt, oil and egg until well blended. Add flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix.
3. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake for 20 mins. Remove tin from oven and cool for 5 mins. Then eat!

NOTE: i didn't have oil so i used melted butter instead. the batter was also very thick, not sure if i got the right kind of yoghurt. so i added a bit of milk to the batter. i baked at 165C for 15mins. oh and instead of caster sugar, i used organic brown sugar.

only after shooting the shot below did i realise what a horrible hand model i make :s
