These Carrot Spelt Muffins are warm and delicious, especially when served with Finlandia butter!
The old cliché is that March enters as a lion and departs as a lamb. However, March’s wrath has persisted to the bitter, icy end this year, at least where I am, with two snow falls inside of these past two weeks.
As I sit writing this, it has just become April, and I am clad in a bulky sweater-jacket, which I have no desire to shed despite the lengthening days.
While part of me no doubt longs for the balmy warmth of summer against my skin. I can’t help the anticipation of once again being able to sit on my back porch and watch as the sun ripples across the canal while seagulls drift lazily on the salty air, cawing down at the world below. Yet, if I am to be honest with you and with myself, part of me will miss the winter.
I will miss the coziness of the winter nights, curling up and watching an old movie with a hot cup of cocoa; waking up to the gray mornings with the ground blanketed in white…I will especially miss baking fresh breads and muffins, as they are the comforts of my soul.
These carrot spelt muffins were made in celebration of Spring and the Easter holiday, but they are also a final nod to Old Man Winter.
Warm and fragrant, the house filled with the sweet aroma of cinnamon, but these muffins were made complete with Finlandia butter.
From the moment I tried Finlandia, I could taste the difference. It was creamier and richer than any other butter I have tried. I firmly believe that using good quality butter really makes a difference in everything you make.
Finlandia is known for its cheeses, but once you try their fresh imported butter, you will see that their esteemed reputation is reflected in the quality and craftsmanship behind each of their products. Like most products Living the Gourmet is proud to support, Finlandia is all-natural, made from pure milk from family-owned farms.
Whether over crusty French bread, or these carrot spelt-muffins, the possibilities for enjoying Finlandia butter are limitless.
