Low fat strawberry lemon cornmeal muffins

Why can’t I find this recipe on my site under ‘s’ for strawberry in ‘sweet muffins’ on my handy recipe index? Oh, because I haven’t posted it. I’ve blogged previously about past-Aimee and future-Aimee and how annoyed I get when I haven’t posted a recipe I want.

While serving these Apple and White Choc muffins up to a couple of visitors at my house, a man asked “how do you get the custard in?”

Good question. Very good question.

Well. I said. (I hesitated here…should I lie?) I used custard powder. I’m not quite sure what else he thought I would have done. (more…)
