Lemon Lavender Mascarpone Muffins

I’ve already talked about how much I love Easter brunch. It is one of my absolute favorite mornings of the year! My family all gets together and we have a huge feast with all kinds of food. Muffins are always on the table to pass around, and usually I make my spiced carrot muffins. This year I decided to switch it up, so I created some amazing lemon lavender mascarpone muffins! They were such a cinch to make.

The batter for the lemon lavender mascarpone muffins came together really quickly. All I had to do was whisk my wet ingredients into my dry ingredients until the batter was smooth. I was careful not to over mix it though so that the muffins would be as tender as possible.
Then I used a 1/3 cup measure to scoop perfect portions of the batter into my well greased muffin tin. The 1/3 cup filled each well almost to the top, which was perfect. It kept the lemon lavender mascarpone muffins a uniform size too!
When the lemon lavender mascarpone muffins came out of the oven they were absolutely gorgeous! I loved how much they puffed up and became golden around the edges. They cooled for a few minutes in the pan before I turned them out to finish cooling on a rack.

Once they finished cooling, it was time to see if these babies were Easter worthy. Oh my goodness they were. The lemon and lavender made them taste so fresh and floral for spring. The mascarpone gave them the most incredible mouthfeel. They were so airy! I can’t wait to serve these for Easter brunch next weekend. I hope you all enjoy them too! xoxo

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground lavender
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon lavender extract
  • 2 whole eggs
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and spray a 12 well muffin pan really well with cooking spray. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, lavender, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk them all together to aerate them. Combine the milk, mascarpone cheese, lemon juice, lavender extract, and eggs in another bowl and whisk them together until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk everything together until it is a smooth batter.
  2. Fill the muffin wells almost to the top using a heaping 1/3 cup measure. Bake the muffins for about 25 minutes, until they puff up gorgeously and bake through. Use a toothpick and insert it into the center of a few to make sure it comes out cleanly. Let them cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan, then turn them out onto a rack to cool completely. Serve them immediately and enjoy! They also will keep for 2 days in sealed containers.
