Baking Time 18 to 25 minutes

1/3 cup fresh calamansi juice

1 cup water

1 cup vegetable oil

2 medium eggs

4 cups cake flour

2 tablespoons non-dairy creamer (we used Coffeemate) or milk powder

1 teaspoon salt


For the calamansi streusel:

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons white sugar

1 tablespoon cold butter

2 tablespoons grated calamansi zest


1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

2 Whisk together calamansi juice, water, vegetable oil, and eggs in a bowl; set aside.

3 In another bowl, sift together flour, creamer, and baking powder. Add sugar and salt.

4 Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture; mix until combined. Make sure not to overmix.

5 Pour batter into prepared liners until about 3/4 full; set aside.

6 Make the calamansi streusel: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle streusel on top of muffins.

7 Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until tops are golden. Let cool before serving.
