I have really been trying to eat more fruit lately so I have been super ambitious with my fruit purchases. But inevitably my fruit consumption has been having a hard time keeping up with my purchases and so a few weekends ago I ended up with an entire carton of strawberries that were going down hill pretty rapidly. I found what looked to be a pretty easy recipe for strawberry muffins and decided to give it a little bit of a floral twist by substituting rosewater in place of the cinnamon. I love floral tastes in foods so these are right up my alley but if you don’t like the way roses smell, you will not like these muffins.
This is the recipe I used for Berry Smash muffins. I removed the cinnamon and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of rosewater. If you are unsure about how you feel about rosewater, you may want to start with 1/4 tsp of rosewater because the taste and smell is pretty potent. Somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 is probably the rosewater sweet spot. If you try these, let me know how it goes!
