If you are a lavender lover, an easy way to add lavender flavor to any of your baked goods is to replace the butter in your recipe with lavender butter. The recipe for lavender butter is so easy that it is almost a stretch to call it a recipe!
Culinary lavender adds a unique and springy flavor to any dish, and I think it truly shines in desserts.
Lavender butter is also great on hot rolls and when served alongside breads and pastries at a brunch. I learned from Kelly at Sounding my Barbaric Gulp that lavender butter is great on artichokes, too!
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 1 teaspoon 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.
- Refrigerate overnight to give the flavor more time to absorb into the butter.
