These muffins are so easy to put together. The lavender flavor really works well with lemon. If you've never baked with lavender, start with just 1 or 2 teaspoons for a more subtle flavor. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk the first 7 ingredients. In another bowl, whisk milk, melted butter and egg until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
  2. Fill 12 paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full; sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
Lavender Flowers
Look for dried lavender flowers in spice shops. If using lavender from the garden, make sure it hasn't been treated with chemicals.
