Kitchen Test: Boracay’s Real Coffee Calamansi Muffins

I’ve never been to Boracay. And one of the famous food finds that I hear/read in Boracay is Real Coffee’s Calamansi Muffins. Thank God for’s food hack recipe, I don’t need to fly to Boracay just to taste this muffin (though I dream of going there!).

Real Coffee Boracay’s Calamansi Muffins (Recipe lifted from  

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 pcs eggs
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup calamansi

  1. Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. Mix together milk and calamansi in a bowl, set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add eggs one at a time and mix well.
  5. Add in milk mixture and flour mixture.
  6. Mix until well blended, don’t over mix.
  7. Scoop in non stick muffin pans.
  8. Bake in preheated 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 18-23 minutes.
 I love the pale yellow color of the mixture. My Nanay tasted the raw mixture (icks!) and she said it tastes like yema.DSC01585

Bake, bake, bake!


They’re like little sunnies! I don’t know if it’s because I used margarine instead of butter which resulted to a more yellowish hue. And for me, muffins should have cracked tops 😛


One bite is not enough. It’s light and the calamansi flavor is just right. I think this goes well with black coffee.


I closed my eyes, hoping that next time I’ll be in Boracay to taste the calamansi muffins of Real Coffee. But for now, I am happy with these.
