This week I travelled down to the south of England to meet my boyfriend’s parents for the first time! Scary times!

As you may have seen on my Facebook page, I was freaking out just a little bit, and asked desperately what I should make for them. They knew I baked, and wrote a food blog, so the pressure was on!

In the end I decided on baking cakes I had made before: Honey and Vanilla Madeleines and Chewy Ginger Cookies

After making those, I wanted something else. After looking in the cupboard and seeing I had lemons and limes, these little zesty muffins were born!

They loved them and I had a great time by the sea. The weather was great and I got to go to the beach. I ate fish and chips and lots of ice cream (the way to my heart).

I don’t know why I even worried.

These muffins are great. They are packed with citrus flavour and have a lovely sugary crust on top.

I think that things taste much better when they’re mini.

These muffins would also taste great if you replaced one of the citrus fruits with orange juice and zest.  It’s on my to bake list.
