Lavender Corn Muffins

So many of my tastes I get from my mother. I have always wondered how much of this is hereditary and how much is subconscious learned behavior. Neither of us are chocolate lovers. Raw onion and overpowering garlic are big turn offs for the both of us. We both love spicy food.  Yet my sister is the opposite – she is a huge chocoholic and can’t tolerate spicy food. It’s similar to the whole nature vs. nurture argument. Who knows – one thing I do know is that chocolate never plays a part in any Mother’s Day sweets in my family. Instead, I thought of my Mom’s palate and came up with these Lavender Corn Muffins.

My Mom is from the Caribbean and cornmeal is a grain that we use in every part of our meals from beverages like Akasan to savory porridges like Tutu to desserts like Cornmeal Pudding. I grew up eating Cornmeal Porridge for breakfast, instead of oatmeal or cream of wheat. So when I decided to embrace the theme of Mother’s Day sweets for this week’s BM theme, I thought of foods and flavors that my Mom loves – cornmeal, coconut and lavender are a few of my mom’s favorite foods and so they were all put into these muffins.

If you love cornmeal as much as my Mom, try some of these:

These muffins are perfect for your Mother’s Day Brunch or breakfast on any day!

I get my lavender from the lavender booth at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, but you can get it at any gourmet supermarket like Whole Foods or Fairway, as well as Amazon.
