Our Lavender Baking Extract is ready and I just had to make something for Easter with it. I was debating between a lavender cheesecake and lavender cupcakes and ended up going with a Lemon Lavender Cupcake recipe from The Cake Blog that you can find here.
I am truly impressed with the outcome. I typically bake cakes that come from a box but these turned out so good and fluffy! And honestly not that much harder to make. I highly recommend the recipe and will be trying a lot more from The Cake Blog!
I am not a professional baker, A.D.D. plus 8 kids just doesn’t lead to the prettiest cakes but man do they taste good! The cake is fluffy and just the right amount of lemon. The frosting has a hint of floral lavender without being overpowering. It is such a unique combination and can we just all agree that lavender purple looks so pretty with lemon yellow?
To make these fun cupcakes you will need basic ingredients plus 3-4 lemons, lavender extract and culinary lavender for decoration. I had everything in my cupboard except the lemons.
The ingredients are listed below (easy ones right?) but head on over to The Cake Blog for more details.
For the Lemon Cupcakes_
unsalted butter, room temperature
grated lemon zest
egg whites, room temperature
fresh lemon juice
For the Lavender Frosting_
water or milk
Purple food coloring, optional
Lemon slices, cut in half
Let me know if you try this recipe and any other lavender ones. I know I have a few more on my baking bucket list and will share them soon. Happy Easter!
