  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

For the Muffins

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon calamansi zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh calamansi juice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups flour

For the Calamansi Glaze

Calamansi Muffins

  • In a bowl, beat eggs using an electric mixer for about 1-2 minutes until thick and frothy. 
  • Add sugar and oil and continue to beat for about 1 to 2 minutes or until creamy. 
  • Add calamansi zest, juice, baking soda, and salt. Beat for about 1 minute. 
  • Add sour cream and beat until combined.
