Ever since I found Andrea’s blog about desserts, I’ve been dying to try some of her recipes.
I finally got around to it today and decided to try the Lavender & Coconut Cupcakes.
I’m not going to repost the recipe here since I didn’t change anything and haven’t asked permission to repost it. But, you can click on the link and it will take you to her post with the recipe. You can find lavender flowers at most health food stores.
The recipe was VERY easy and could be adapted for other flavors too. The aroma coming from the oven was just mouth-watering. While the cupcakes were baking, I whipped up the frosting in Andrea’s blog. The only thing I think I’ll change next time is to add more flavoring.
Mine isn’t nearly as pretty, but they sure taste good! The lavender gives it a nice floral touch and the coconut is perfect .. the frosting is perfect with it, even though I think it needs more flavoring when you taste it alone.
It’s like a spa massage in your mouth.
