Butter Kaya Muffins

Two weeks ago, I came across a small tub of kaya in the fridge which was nearing its best before date that I knew I had to do something.

Surely not, you say?

Trust me. Take a bite into it an hour after they are done and you wouldn't know what hit you. They taste a bit like kaya balls.

Andrew (a "DRGP" member) said it was pretty good. So I gave him two. =P

Anyway, while the cupcakes were baking, I was preparing some carrot hummus for dinner.

But we only managed to sit down for dinner at 11pm, after our run with YK and Andrew.

Hmmmm. The carrots were overwhelmed by the chickpeas so I think I'll have to add another carrot the next time I make this again.

You know what my problem was?

I still had some kaya left.

I contemplated eating it with bread but I decided heck, I was going to bake a cake this time.

With a hint of lemon, that is.
A tablespoon of lemon zest and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice was all I added so it wasn't overpowering, but you could still taste traces of lemon in it. ;)

And I loved it!
I think I'm in love with lemons. But it sounds quite sad if I was the only person in love with my own baking. *bows head down in shame*

I wanted to share it with the world DRGP but no one seemed available to try it out that Friday. Boo.

But my boss said it was nice. =)

p.s. I lied! They're cupcakes, not muffins.
