Grapefruit Muffins? Not bad!

I know Grapefruit and Muffins usually don't go together but I like being creative so that's what I made! They weren't bad...juicy and very citrusy...BUT they came out a lil too soft. They were great right out of the oven but not ideal for traveling since they can get squished REALLY easily! Sorry mommy, you won't be tasting this one! :(

Ingredients: (12 muffins)

1 c all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ c whole wheat flour
½ c granulated sugar
6 Tbsp butter, melted
1 large egg
1 c buttermilk
1 grapefruit, segmented and roughly chopped
½ c walnuts, roughly chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together into a bowl. Stir in the whole wheat flour and granulated sugar.

2. Mix together the butter, egg and buttermilk and pour over the dry ingredients. Add the grapefruit and walnuts to the flour mixture. Stir only enough to moisten the flour, the mixture should be lumpy.

3. Spoon the mixture evenly between each muffin case and bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Remove the muffins to a cooling rack and leave to cool.
