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

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.

  • 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)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups.
  6. 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.

Hint of Lime muffin recipe

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.
