Drying Lavender

Drying Lavender on a Baking Sheet

I’m making some lavender cupcakes tomorrow, to go with my remaining rose petal ones, so I’ve just picked a handful of lavender sprigs from the garden to dry. I laid them out on a baking sheet and popped them in my fan oven on “defrost” to dry gently. After a few hours, they’ll come out and continue to air dry overnight. Hopefully I’ll have some lovely dried lavender by the morning! I need about 8 sprigs to shred and add to to the sponge mixture, and 12 to decorate the tops of the cupcakes.

    can i just use shop bought dried lavender? I also have some sugar with lavender in it

    Yes, of course! :D The lavender sugar would probably work really well – yum! The recipe requires you to blitz the dried lavender with sugar in the food processor, so your lavender sugar has done that job already :) Happy baking!
