no i was wrong--macsmom didn't start it but she exploded it--in a great good way!!!
just happen to have my lavender devils food recipe handy
from sharon shipley's lavender cookbook
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 2 teaspoons dried culinary 'provence' lavender buds, finely ground in a spice grinder
- 1.5 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 pound butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
just make & bake it like any choco cake
i think one might get lost in the other
but if you hit it right it could be awesome
but it might compete
you could make the batter then add mint to a cupcake amount & bake it off & see how you like it?
oh no --i got it--use mint icing!!!!!
but still you (or i would anyhow) would wanna test it to be sure it's all compatable
because the lavender is a gentle light flavor or it goes into sudden death soap flavor so there's a balance there
