Directions

Pre heat oven 190 degree Celcius
In a large bowl lightly beat the eggs, and then add the honey. Whisk until combined.
Then add the oil and juice of the lemon and lime and whisk again until all the ingredients are combined.
In a medium bowl sift together the flour and baking powder.
Then add the zest of the lemon and zest of the lime (saving a tiny smidge of each to decorate the top of the muffins at the end) and the caster sugar.
Pour half the flour mixture into the egg mixture bowl and fold with a wooden spoon until just combined.
Add the rest of the flour and repeat. Do not over mix.
Fill the muffin cases with the batter until 3/4 full. Then place in the pre heated oven, on the middle shelf for 22-25 mins, or until a skewer or toothpick comes out clean and slightly browned on top.
For the glaze: While these are in the oven, pop the sifted icing sugar, lime and lemon juices in a medium bowl. Mix until smooth.
Leave the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
While still warm, pour the glaze over the muffins, as much or as little as your heart desires and then sprinkle with some zest.
