He has recently discovered a love of lime. I decided to make a lime curd for him, and put it inside vanilla mini muffins.
There's a fine line between a muffin and a cupcake. These will be served at morning snack at school. Thus - no frosting, and they are muffins.
The lime curd was very easy. It came together in 10 minutes or so. I used the recipe from Crazy for Crust, with fresh lime juice, and I strained the curd at the end, to give it a smooth and luscious texture.
The muffins could be modified in many ways, by adding fruit or nuts or anything you like. I love a good versatile recipe. I used this recipe from Dine and Dish for the muffins. Mini muffins take only 10-12 minutes to bake.
To stuff the muffins, I just carved the center out with a sharp knife, and then spooned in a little lime curd.
