La vie en rose

Hi all! I'm back, back to my roots, back to baking! I know, I know I haven't been an assiduous blogger lately, but I'm full of ideas for this upcoming spring, so I promise I'll post much more often.

Since the weather still isn't exactly spring-like and I'm longing for the sun sooooo badly, I decided to anticipate the smell of flowers and the taste of them... Yes, the TASTE of roses! 
So I baked pink muffins with rose flavour.

What you need for about 12 muffin:
110 gr. butter
110 gr. sugar
110 gr. flour
1 spoon of baking powder
2 eggs
1 spoon of milk
1 pinch of salt
rose extract
pink or red food colouring

How to proceed:
Preheat the oven at 180° C and prepare the paper cases in the muffin tray.
Mix the butter with the sugar, the eggs, and the rose axtract (as much as you like - I put one spoon). When you get a fluffy consistency add the flour, the baking powder, the food colouring, and the milk. If the dough is too sandy add more milk.
Put the batter in the cases and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Before you eat them wait untill they cool down, otherwise you won't taste the intensity of the rose.

And when you'll savour them you'll see la vie en rose...



Thanks so much for reading! I appreciate your comments, enquiries, and suggestions :)
