About the bake

These delicate flavoured muffins, with hints of lavender and lemon are delightful at an afternoon tea or picnic in the great outdoors. Be careful with the lavender, it can be quite an overpowering flavour so make sure you don't add too much.

      Snip the flowers from the lavender and put into a food processor with the sugar. Blend together until combined.
