Hint of Lime muffin recipe
I’m a huge fan of stevia because it has no calories and is all natural. I really try to watch my calories and since I like to bake, finding alternatives to sugar is important to me. Baking with stevia is not something that I have a lot of luck with. It doesn’t work like sugar when you bake with it which has always frustrated me. When I heard that Domino had come out with a new product called Domino Light All Natural Sugar & Stevia Blend, I was excited to see if I could bake with it. It has half the calories of sugar so that’s over a 350 calorie savings in each cup! They blended pure cane Domino Sugar with a naturally sweet extract from the stevia plant to create a delicious sweetener with no artificial ingredients.
Domino Light All Natural Sugar & Stevia Blend comes in a two pound resealable pouch which is ideal for baking. The pouch contains the same amount of sweetness as a four pound bag of sugar. Replace 1 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of Domino Light in your recipes. You can also purchase Domino Light in a 40-Count Packet Box which is ideal for coffee (and yummy). Just toss a few packets in your handbag and you won’t ever be stuck having to use something else while you’re out. I decided to try Domino Light in one of my favorite muffin recipes. This is a lightly sweet muffin recipe that I think is perfect with a cup of tea.
23 minsCook Time
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup Domino Light All Natural Sugar & Stevia Blend
- 2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tbsp finely grated lime zest
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 tbsp confectioner's sugar (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350F
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat granulated sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until fluffy and pale yellow. Beat in milk and lime zest until blended.
- With the mixer on low speed, beat in flour mixture alternately with lime juice, making two additions of flour and one of juice, until just blended.
- Divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups.
- Bake in preheated oven for 23 to 28 minutes or until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 3 minutes, then transfer to the rack to cool. Sift confectioners' sugar over tops of cooled muffins if you want.
If I hadn’t known that I was using Domino Light in my Hint of Lime muffin recipe, I never would have known. I tasted absolutely no difference at all in the taste or texture of my muffins. They were just as delicious as always. I love that I can enjoy my baked goods with less calories without having to resort to artificial ingredients. This is a great way for me to watch my calories and since I cannot taste any difference, I’m going to sneak it into my husband’s baked treats too since he’s diabetic.
