Lilac muffins recipe

Every spring I get very inspired by the flowering lilacs that grow in our front yard. Last year I made the lilac jelly and this year I wanted to make the lilac muffins. Here is the recipe:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup lilac blossoms

Preheat the oven for 400 degrees... baking time will be 25 minutes.

Rinse your lilacs and try to get out all the green parts that sneaked in. Then mix together the butter, egg, sugar, and milk.

 In a different bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Put this mixture in your mixing bowl and let it do it's job. When everything is well mixed, fold in the lilac blossoms.

Fill up the muffin cups about 3/4 up and put in the oven. Oven times may vary so keep an eye on them. Here they are!!!

I like their taste. They are not too sweet and taste almost like european style busquits. I got this recipe from the always lovely Dana at the Roscommon Acres blog. Thank you!
