So what can I do with this bounty when I'm baking? I'll start with lavender. I picked two huge bunches at the weekend and they're hanging in the kitchen to dry, ready for a bake or two at the end of September. The flowers are a bit sparse as it's already September, but hopefully there will be enough to make one of these delicious recipes.
I was planning to make fudge this Christmas, so this lavender infused fudge recipe will be a great start.
Lavender Sunshine Cookies - so named for the OJ in them, I am guessing?
Shortbread is a favourite in my family, so I'm definitely going to try this lavender shortbread.
Lavender and Honey Cake - these cupcakes look a bit creamy and indulgent, but mmm, I could try a small one!
A teacake is always popular.
These look AWESOME: Lavender Cheesecake Brownies.
You know I like my coconut bakes (see my posts on 'haystacks' and 'vegan coconut cake'), so this lavender coconut bake will be very much welcomed!
Lavender and lemon is another combination which seems to be popular - I may well try this bake.
Yes, this one's not a cake, but it's still baked in the oven... Lavender Roasted Potatoes. Mmmm!
Who says lavender is for old ladies?!
