Lemons, lavender and blackberries! The perfect combination for a spring dessert.
- Flour + Baking powder + Baking soda + Salt
- Lemon juice
- Plain Greek yogurt
- Lavender extract
- Dried culinary lavender
- Powdered sugar
No Plain Greek Yogurt on Hand? Use sour cream as a replacement.
Can I Use Frozen Blackberries? Yes. Fresh or frozen blackberries will work with this frosting. If you use frozen berries, you can omit the extra water when pureeing them.
- Be sure to use culinary lavender. You can also use lavender for candles, soaps, etc. So, be sure it is the stuff that is safe to eat.
- Don’t go overboard with the dried lavender. A small amount will give you plenty of flavor. Also, chop it well..you don’t want large pieces of lavender in your cake.
- Don’t over mix your batter. Simply mix it until there are no dry spots left in the batter. Over mixing may give you a dense cake.
