Why do we call muffins “muffins?” They’re pretty much all cupcakes without the frosting. Right?
I personally like to call cupcakes “muffins” simply to justify having them for breakfast. After all, it’s a great way to start the day! ;-)
I’m calling these guys “muffins” so you feel good about serving them at your weekend brunch. For even more sweetness, you can serve my Vanilla Fig Preserves with them. And they’ll be perfect after some savory Smoky Chipotle Breakfast Nachos for your main course!
This Coconut Lemon Muffin recipe is bright, sweet, delicious, and gluten-free. I love baking gluten-free when it doesn’t feel as though I’m losing anything in taste or quality. Well, these muffins are wonderful with coconut flour! Coconut and lemon make a superb flavor combination — especially in a dessert.
And yes, it’s Friday. . . which means here it’s Friday Flowers. Today I’m thinking about Impatiens. If you look around your neighborhood you’ll see Impatiens in someone’s yard. They grow year round, in hundreds of different pretty colors. I think they’re particularly cute, just like the muffins are!
