I am so lucky to have a Key lime tree in my yard. It’s my favorite plant in our landscaping. Each year it generously provides me with a plethora of the golden gems. I make many recipes with the zest and juice of my Key limes but these Key lime muffins with Key lime glaze is a family favorite.
If you’ve seen my other Key lime recipes on this blog, you know who much I love this small citrus fruit. You also know that ripe Key limes are yellow, not green, which surprises many people. When you purchase Key limes in the supermarket they are green but they are not ripe. The flavor changes as they ripen, it becomes more mellow. The first time I made these muffins I didn’t glaze them and felt something was missing. The glaze really makes the muffin adding just a touch of sweetness. Definitely a great way to start the day.
