Quick Lavender Cakes

12 Jan

This morning we were working on our project at my place (presentation tomorrow!) and I did some caramel-cakes with Lavender to keep the study motivation up. This is a recipe I often use when I need to bake something really tasty quick.

You need this:

100 g butter

1 dl sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 tablespoon syrup

2,5 dl flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons dried Lavender

 

First mix room-tempered butter and sugar (easy with an electricity whisk) and then add the rest of the ingredients. Divide the batter into 3 pieces and roll each piece into a roll in the same length as your tin. Place the rolls on the tin and use a fork to make patterns in them. Bake for about 10 minutes in a 175°C-hot oven. Cut them into pieces when they are still hot and soft.

Don’t worry they look small unbaked on the tin, they will expand in the oven. 

Today I used Lavender, but they are good natural too. And it’s also tasty to change the Lavender to Peppermint or Rosemary.

Yum!

Idag jobbade vi på vårt projekt hemma hos mig på förmiddagen. För att hålla studiemotivationen uppe bakade jag kolakakor med lavendel, mycket gott!

    Lovely idea. I’ve been thinking about drying my own lavendar – I may do that and write a post about it :D. Thanks for the inspiration!

      You’re welcome! Lavender is wonderful both in bloom and in cakes, my favorite is the one named Hidcote Blue.

    these look delicious! and simple 🙂 does 1 dl = 1 cup?

    • britandelsa January 12, 2012 at 21:23 #

      They are! 🙂 Unfortunately dl and cup aren’t the same though, 1 cup equals 2,4 dl so I’d say 1 dl is about 0,4 cup. Good luck! /elsa
