Tuesdays with Dorie: Citrus Pecan Sunshine Muffins

Tuesday, March 15


I couldn't possibly stay away for lemons for too long. And I'm happy to say that they rebounded quite well in this recipe. These muffins match the mood that everyone seems to be in now that Spring is on the way. They're perky, hopeful, and full of promise for the coming day/season. As opposed to my usual late-winter sulky persona (this year it was almost as bad as my angsty, brooding, door-slamming preteen phase.) I'm just so happy that the long months of winter are Finally coming to an end!

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Lauryn, of Bella Baker. The muffins are actually supposed to be citrus Currant sunshine muffins, but I didn't have any currant, raisins, cranberries (sad), or any other kind of tiny, wrinkly fruit. But the pecans added a nice little crunch to the soft texture. These are perfect to make, freeze, and thaw out the night before, for deliciously fast breakfast.

  12. The muffins look great, Valerie. On a side note, why have you left the comments area without a white background? It gets sort of hard to read. Just a suggestion?

  13. Hi Avanika,
    Thanks for bringing that up! Sorry about that...it is a bit difficult to read. I'll ask the designer if she can fix it some time in the future. :)

  19. Valerie - there is something about the delicate colour and shape of these tender muffins paired with the white teacup that is just perfect. Quiet, understated and very, very pretty in a subtle manner. They seem like the perfect accompaniment with tea and just the art of the colours and the shapes and the placement is peaceful and satisfying today.
