Blueberry and Lavender Cake

Overall, it’s a simple cake with great results.

You could skip the buttercream and just serve the cake with a drizzle of icing sugar.

From Sugar Et Al
The lavender adds a beautiful , subtle aroma to the cake (almost like Earl Grey) whilst the blueberries add a moist, flavour packed bite within the cake.




Blueberry and Lavender Cake
Makes a 6 inch round cake

  • 150 g unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup self raising flour
  • 200 g Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk (optional, if batter is too thick)

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (160 degrees C for fan forced ovens). Grease the base and sides of a 6 inch round baking pan and line the base with baking paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer, or by hand beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Add half the flour and half the yogurt and fold to combine. Add the remaining flour and yogurt and milk (if batter is too thick.)
  4. Stir in the lavender and blueberries and just fold one or twice to combine.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven. Leave aside for 10 minutes.  Slowly turn out cake onto a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, frost with lavender frosting and decorate with blueberries.
