If you haven’t tried baking with lavender before, I highly recommend it. Lavender adds such a suttle yet inviting taste to baked goods. Fresh and inviting is how I would describe it.
I purchased a package of dried lavender for baking. I tried a couple of recipes using the lavender. The first was for lavender scones. The scones had lavender in the batter and infused into the glaze. https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/lavender-scones/ The second lavender goodie I tried was a lavender shortbread cookie. Again the lavender was in the dough and the glaze.
I really liked the lavender glazes and have decided it would be very easy to add the lavender into cakes and frostings as well. To make the glazes, it is a very simple process, just allow the lavender to seep into the warmed liquid (milk or water) for a few minutes, then strain it through a fine sieve before adding it to the dry ingredients.
Springtime, lavender baked goods, and a cup of tea….now doesn’t that sound wonderful!
As always, Happy Baking!
