Lavender Butter Recipe: An Easy Way to Add Lavender Flavor to Any Cupcake
Culinary lavender adds a unique and Springy flavor to any dish. Lavender seems to be one of those love it or hate it flavors. Some can’t get past the fact that it smells like soap or perfume. I can’t blame them, since as many of you know, I can’t eat mint because I can’t get past the fact that it tastes like toothpaste.
If you are a lavender lover, an easy way to add lavender flavor to any of your cupcakes is to replace the butter with lavender butter.
Lavender butter would also be great on hot rolls. In addition, I learned from Kelly at Sounding my Barbaric Gulp that lavender butter is great on artichokes.
Lavender Butter Recipe
The recipe for lavender butter is so easy that it is almost a stretch to call it a recipe.
- 1 stick of butter (8T) – Room temperature
- 1 t culinary lavender
In a food processor, cut the lavender into the butter until it is fully integrated. Wrap the lavender butter in parchment paper and store in the fridge. I would recommend leaving it the fridge at least overnight to give the flavor more time to absorb into the butter.
