Peach Lavender Cornmeal Buttermilk Muffins #Baketogether

May 10, 2012

The Baketogether with Abby Dodge this month featured a fabulous recipe for Cornmeal Buttermilk Muffins , a sweet or savory version.   As the first juicy peaches are now coming in from South Georgia, I wanted to incorporate peaches into the recipe.   Here I have used my Peach Lavender jam to create a sweet version of the original muffin recipe.   So…instead of fresh fruit, I added 5 oz of my Peach Lavender jam to the egg mixture.  The baked muffins are marbled with the jam and they burst with bits of peach flavor, really pleased with the results!  I also decided to put a little sweet topping on these and used my trusty Vita Mix to blend sugar and dried organic lavender flowers to elevate these muffins.    You will note I reduced the sugar in the muffins ever so slightly as I was using jam, plus adding a sweet topping.  Taken directly from Abby, if you are new or would like to join the #Baketogether, please know that  we are a very inclusive  group of happy bakers.  You can  Subscribe to Abby’s rss feed so you are always  in-the-know and check out this post for some info on how we #baketogether.

  8. I want to say something nice…really I do. I mean these are lovely and sound wonderful but a part of me is just GREEN WITH ENVY. You are getting peaches and we’re still have 35 degree nights??!! So not fair. As not fair as they are fabulous. 🙂

    I’m now going to put some socks on and pretend I’m warm and eating one of these muffins on my veranda with a cup of tea…even if I don’t even have a veranda. I do have lavender though, or will and these will be made. Promise.
