Muffins two ways: lemon curd and chocolate chips


I had a jar of lemon curd to use up so I was on the hunt for a basic cake recipe that I could jazz up with a  bit of the lemony goo. I came across this recipe for a basic muffin batter and it turned out to be just perfect for adding bits and pieces. You basically mix up all the dry ingredients and stir up the wet ingredients in separate bowls before combining wet with dry.

In addition to the ingredients listed in the recipe, I added 75g of chocolate chips to half the batter and about 6 tablespoons of lemon curd to the other ( 1 tbsp per muffin). Once the muffins were baked, I also brushed a little extra curd on top of the still hot lemon cakes. Finished of with some lemony sugar crystals (I used Askeys ice cream topping sprinkles), they looked so delicious. And they certainly tasted delicious. A big hit with both the girlies, hubby and ME!
