Luscious lychee muffins!

Made some muffins out of the leftover canned lychees... these are really really really GOOD. seriously.
Recipe from here... thanks to Jestina for generously sharing the recipe. I couldn't resist and took one before it cooled down. so... dammed... good! (yes, i repeated myself... guess it only shows how i love these muffins)

I managed to get only 10 small muffins out of it. Will definately be making more of these very soon.



  • This has been on my to-make list for months. But I only have longan at home and not lycee, anyone try making this with longan before?

  • well, i love longans more than lychees and was thinking of trying wif longans too! *great minds think alike huh? LOL* but lychees are much more frangrant that longans, so i'm not sure how it'll turn out.

  • Yeah lor, that's what I thought. Lychees not only more fragrant also softer. If you try it with longan, you post it and let me know and can make a comparison also since you would have tried both already. I'm a bit scare to experiment with longan muffin to speak the true. LOL! And I'm also a person who loves longan more than lychee!

  • Hi Ida,

    Baked these muffins today with fresh longan. Super delicious. As the fresh longan is very sweet and juicy, I had to cut down on the sugar and juice. Thanks for the link to Jestina's recipe.
