Lavender muffins















I made these muffins some days ago and  is a special recipe with a little lavender flowers .
This recipe is adapted from a nice book " Cupcakes and muffins" from Parragon, England.

Ingredients  (12 muffins)

150 grams golden sugar
120  grams soft butter
200 grams all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 eggs beaten
1 tablespoon of milk
1 teaspoon  lavender flowers
(chopped)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

glaze

150 grams glass sugar
water
Lavender flowers (to garnish)
Silver  dragees


Method


Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
In a bowl beat the sugar and butter until creamy pale and frothy.
Incorporate the eggs slowly  and add  milk,
lavender
and vanilla and then the flour and baking powder slowly.

Divide the batter among the paper liners and bake in preheated oven at 180 ° c.
Bake by  15 minutes or until lightly browned tall.
Slightly tighten the tip of a muffin and recovers is  ready.
A few minutes before the muffins are  made  sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add a little water to get a thick glaze.
When you are ready, then let stand covered with glaze and let it drip down the sides a little.
Garnish
with  lavender flowers and silver dragees.

El otro día hice estos muffins con flores de lavanda que quedan muy buenos.
Para los que no estan acostumbrados a mis recetas con lavanda (postres, helados cakes) les diré que el sabor es muy suave y si quieren pueden disminuir la cantidad.
En este caso lleva una cucharadita de lavanda  y puede ser media .

150 gramos de azúcar rubia
120 gramos de mantequilla suavizada
2 huevos batidos
1 cucharada de leche
1 cucharadita de flores de landa picadas
1 cucharadita extracto de vainilla
200 gramos de harina sin polvos de hornear
1 cucharadita de polvos de hornear

Glace
150 gramos de azúcar flor o impalpable
