Citrus Olive Oil Muffins

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 cup high-quality olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon (heaping) citrus zest
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 drops almond extract
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoon citrus juice
  • 1/3 + 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds
  • toasted powdered sugar for serving (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350? and place 4 cupcake liners in 4 cups in a muffin pan.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and citrus zests of your choice. Add the sugar, almond extract, egg white, milk and citrus juice. Whisk the liquid ingredients together very well. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and slivered almonds. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and stir until just combined. Divide the batter between the 4 muffin cups and bake on the center rack in the oven for 16-18 minutes. Test with a toothpick for doneness—cupcakes should be moist with some crumbs clinging to the toothpick. Let cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
