Blueberry Lavender Muffins
Baskets of ripe blueberries practically beg to be baked into blueberry muffins. Blueberry is one of the most popular muffin flavors out there, and one of the reasons that it is so hard to tire of them is that it is so easy to put different twists on them to change their flavors. You can add coconut, nuts, lemon zest or a streusel topping. For these Blueberry Lavender Muffins, I added dried lavender to some buttermilk blueberry muffins to give them an unexpected and subtle – but delicious – twist.

The muffins are moist and fluffy, studded generously with plump, juicy blueberries. There is just enough lavender to bring out the subtle floral notes of the blueberries, which makes the muffins seem even more packed with berries than they already are. I added a dusting of lavender sugar on top of the muffins to give them a little extra sweetness and to highlight the lavender a bit, apart from the berries.

I prefer to use fresh blueberries in these when they are available, but frozen blueberries can be used, as well. You may need to add an additional minute or two of baking time if using frozen berries because the quantity of berries used in this recipe will cool down the batter a bit. I also recommend tossing frozen blueberries in 1-2 tsp of flour before adding them to the batter, as that will help prevent the berries from bleeding prior to baking.

The lavender sugar is something that you can prepare in advance and keep in your pantry. It is made simply by mixing dried lavender and sugar, then letting the mixture sit and infuse – much the same way that vanilla sugar is made. You can make it with regular sugar or coarse sugar, and it can be used in any baking application where you want a subtle lavender flavor. I usually use it to top muffins and rim cocktail glasses, so I often use coarse sugar so that I get a more dramatic look when I apply it.

Blueberry Lavender Muffins
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 tbsp dried lavender
Lavender Sugar, for topping (recipe below)

Preheat oven to 375F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and egg until well combined, then whisk in vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Stir in half of the flour mixture, followed by the buttermilk, then stir in the remaining flour mixture until it is almost completely incorporated. Gently fold in blueberries and lavender until well-distributed.
Divide batter evenly into prepared muffin pans. Top each with 2-3 tsp lavender sugar.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean and the muffins spring back when lightly pressed.
Cool completely on a wire rack.

Makes 12.

Lavender Sugar
1 cup sugar
2 tsp dried lavender

In a food processor, combine sugar and lavender and pulse a few times to combine. Transfer to an airtight container and store for at least 24 hours (to infuse sugar with more flavor).

Makes 1 cup.

Dill and Potato Irish Soda Bread

Irish soda bread – often simply described as “soda bread” – is the sort of recipe that everyone should know how to make. The savory, quick-rising bread gets its lift from baking soda, not from yeast, and it can be mixed up in less than 5 minutes. You read that right: homemade bread from scratch with almost no prep time!

Not only does it come together quickly, soda bread can be flavored in any number of different ways, so that one bread recipe can yield dozens of different loaves. I’ve made sweet versions and savory versions before, so you really can take it in any direction you want to go. This Dill and Potato Irish Soda Bread is a savory herbed soda bread that uses plenty of dill, making it a great choice for springtime dining.

Instant potatoes may seem like an unusual ingredient here, but they’re a surprisingly handy ingredient to have when you bake a lot of breads, whether yeast breads or quick breads. The potatoes dissolve into the bread, so you don’t get any potato flavor at all, and create a softer crumb than wheat flour alone. That is why you’ll often see soft “potato bread” in the sandwich bread section of the grocery store.

Instant potatoes keep very well in the cupboard, so you can have them on hand for baking projects without needing to cook up whole potatoes. If you happen to have leftover mashed potatoes, they can be substituted by using 1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup of instant. Leftover potatoes have more moisture than dried potato flakes, so your final loaf may need ever-so-slightly less buttermilk to come together.

I used dried dill, but fresh dill can be used if you happen to have some. Fresh dill is more potent than dried, so use slightly less than the amount I suggest below. If you’re a big dill fan, feel free to use a bit more! The bread is herbacious and savory, with a great flavor. It’s delicious when served warm and spread with butter, or when paired with a great spring soup or salad. The loaf can be eaten almost as soon as it comes out of the oven and is at its best when its fresh, so try to make it as soon before serving as possible. Leftovers can be stored at room temperature and taste great toasted when served alongside a soup or salad.

Dill and Potato Irish Soda Bread
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup instant potato flakes
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp dried dill
approx 1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, sugar and dried dill. Stir in buttermilk, mixing until the dough pulls together into a ball. If the dough is too sticky, add in an additional 1-2 tablespoons of flour. Dough will be sticky, but you should be able to shape it into a ball.
Shape dough into a ball and place on parchment paper. Cut two deep slashes (to form a +) on the top of the loaf.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and set.
Allow loaf to cool on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

Makes 1 loaf; Serves 6-8.

*Note: Lots of soda breads include raisins or currants, regardless of whether the bread is sweet or savory. If you like raisins in your soda bread, , stir in 1/2 cup along with the buttermilk and continue with the directions as written.
