It's Thursday's with Dorie this week. I don't really have a valid excuse. I could lie and say I had some really important shit going on this week, but I didn't so I won't!
I didn't have any currants in the house. To tell the truth, I don't even know what currants are, so that may be why I didn't have any in the house. I did happen to have some of King Arthur Flour's tropical fruit blend so I used that. It just seemed appropriate for a muffin with "sunshine" in its name.
It says right on the package, "This combination of dried pineapple, papaya, mango and coconut will transport you instantly to your beachside hammock." Tell me that doesn't scream SUNSHINE!!! The combination of the dried tropical fruits with the orange and lemon made for a perfect muffin.
Thanks to Lauryn of Bella Baker for a great pick. Click here for the recipe.
