Posted on

I really love these cakes. You wouldn’t think lavender would work in a cake but alas, the universe like to surprise doesn’t it? They are so delicate and dainty. I love this recipe and I think you will too.

You will need:

  • 120ml milk
  • 3 tablespoons lavender flowers
  • 120g plain flour
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 11/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 40g softened butter
  • 1 egg

For the Frosting

  • 250g Icing Sugar
  • 80g Butter
  • 25ml milk
  • Tablespoon dried lavender flowers

A 12-hole cake tray lined with paper cases.

Method:

  1. Put the milk and dried flowers in a jug, cover and leave overnight. Do the same with the milk and flowers for the frosting in a separate jug.
  2. Preheat oven to 170°C.
  3. Mix the flour, butter, baking powder, and sugar in a mixing bowl and slowly beat until combined and sandy.
  4. Strain the lavender milk and beat into mixture. Add the egg and beat well.
  5. Split the mixture between cases and bake for 20/25 mins. Leave to cool.
  6. Beat together the icing sugar, butter and food colouring in a mixer.
  7. Pour the strained lavender milk into the mixture then continue beating until frosting is light and fluffy.
  8. When cupcakes are cool, spoon frosting onto cupcakes.

Enjoy baking my lovelies!

Lots of love
