I adapted this recipe from Baking & Desserts. Isnt it great how baking any kind of lemon, lime or citrus makes just makes your kitchen smell divine ? Well this is definitely the case here.
1 1/2 Cups AP flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 egg white
3/4 cup melted butter
1/2 pear chopped with skin on into pieces the size of chocolate chips
2/3 cup milk
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1 Tablespoon grated lime rind
2 tsp poppy seeds
1-2 tsp poppy seeds for sprinkling on top
Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Line 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.
SSift flour, baking powder, and salt into med mixing bowl. Add sugar and stir together.
In seperate bowl whisk together egg, egg white, lime juice, lime rind, milk, and melted butter. Add to dry ingredients and briefly mix. Add poppy seeds and pear and stir gently.
Divide batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle with poppy seeds and bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Remove, serve warm. These are soooo good. I have been asked by my youngest to pleeeeaaaze make these again!!!
