  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a muffin tin with butter.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, yogurt, sourdough starter
    (if using), eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla until smooth.
    Then whisk in the melted butter.
  • Add the dry ingredients and the elderflowers to the wet ingredients and
    gently fold it all together, being careful to not overmix.
  • Divide the muffin batter evenly into the buttered muffin tin. You can
    sprinkle a few more elderflowers on top before baking if you'd like.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 20-22 minutes, or until they are golden brown
    and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Top with a sprinkle of fresh elderflowers before serving, if desired.
