Lavender muffins

This is from the same series... what cookie my daughter will take to school as a snack?
I wanted to cook with lavender and when I saw this recipe I said... this is for me. With some little differences because the original recipe was looking like a rectangular loaf and my daughter expressed her clear wish for a round cake. Round to be then... but more than one and smaller ... of course, what could be else than muffins ?
A bit of violet color couldn't miss and to make it more interesting I have hidden some Turkish delight in the middle.
Success guaranteed!

  • 150g all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 75g corn starch
  • the zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of dried lavender
  • 100g sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 200g butter (melted)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Cointreau
  • a drop of violet food coloring ( you can combine blue with red to obtain the color you want)
  • 1 piece of Turkish delight for each muffin (14 pieces in total)

  1. Beat the eggs and add the flour. Mix them together.
  2. Add the melted butter and mix.
  3. Add cornstarch and mix slowly.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients and mix until you obtain a smooth batter.
  5. Pour 1 big icrecream scoop of batter in cupcake paper shells.
  6. Place them in a muffin tray. I ended up with 14 muffins. You can also use silicone cupcake cases and in this case you do not need a special tray anymore.
  7. Hide the Turkish delight piece in each of the muffins in the middle.
  8. Bake them for 45 minutes at 180ºC
