Actually it’s Canarian Bienmesabe. 🙂 It was really difficult for me to find something Spanish and baked that sounded good to me. I’m not a fan of churros and empanadas just sounded too South American to me. But, finally, after a looooooong search, I ended up with those little treasures called Bienmesabe. And if my Spanish does not let me down, I believe the name translates to something like “tastes good”. And they do! Well, basically anything that comes in form of a muffin can’t be so bad, I’d say. Here’s the recipe:
120 grams brown sugar
3 tbs honey
80 ml oil
150 grams yoghurt
200 grams flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
1 lime, zest&juice
for the topping
- Preheat oven to 175° Celsius (or 350° fahrenheit).
- Mix all the wet ingredients except the lime juice.
- Mix all the dry ingredients plus lime zest.
- Add lime juice to wet ingredients as well as the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Take a 12er muffin tray (line them with muffin cups or grease them whatever you usually do) and distribute dough evenly.
- Bake for about 25 minutes. Take out and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
- While the muffins cool, mix together confectioners sugar and lime juice (Be careful not to take too much juice! A rather thick consistency works best for glazing.).
- Glaze muffins.
Bien me sabe!
