TWD-Citrus Sunshine Muffins

Citrus Sunshine Muffins...sounds like Summer in a muffin to me! Winter has been LONG and COLD here in Utah and I am ready for some sunshine and warmer weather. Spring is definitely on the horizon but it doesn't seem like we've had very many days that make me believe it!

I made these goodies last night so my family could have them for breakfast this morning. I always have good intentions not to do the cold cereal thing for breakfast, but when you are trying to get 5 kids out the door to get kids to school it just isn't doable for me right now. I didn't have any currants but I did have some fresh blackberries so I added those to the batter. (You can see a little bit of blackberry in the front muffin.) The citrus smell was so fresh. I loved it! They smelled wonderful as they baked.

This morning I warmed them up and served them with a little butter. They were a huge hit. A big enough hit that my kids asked for more when they came home from school. I think we have a winner!

Check out the recipe on Bella Baker.

Until next week! Happy Baking!

You just gotta love muffins for breakfast! I could eat them every day if I had a slice or two of bacon to go with. And some good coffee. You know? Those are very pretty muffins you have there.

Winter has been long and cold and rainy in the Seattle area so these were a nice bit of sunshine!
