This month for Taste & Create I was paired with Karolcia of For the body and soul blog. Karlocia is a girl after my own heart....a lot of muffins, a lot of white chocolate, and a lot of coconut. As soon as I saw the recipe for Lime, white chocolate and coconut muffins - I knew I would be making it!
At first I was a little worried there wasn't enough sugar, but never fear, the white chocolate adds sweetness to this muffin! I'm also pretty proud of my lime sectioning - I did an awesome job. Too bad I never thought to take a photo! I never realized how easy it was to section a citrus fruit before!
These tasted great. They were sweet enough, had that coconut lime kick and will make Grumpy happy with the white chocolate! I did follow Karolcia's recipe as it was with the exception I wasn't sure what to do with the lime rind. I ended up putting some of it in the batter and some for garnish. Also, in the future, I will not bake at 390 - this was too warm for my oven. I would go with 350 degrees. I baked at 390 for 15 minutes and had to pull them out because they were getting a bit overbrowned.
Thanks again to Nicole of For the Love of Food for hosting Taste & Create. If your interested, take a look at her site and send her the email to join up for May!
