Lavender and lemon are an unusual combination but work together well in this great slice.


Serves: 12

  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender flowers
  • 125g butter, softened

  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Preheat an oven to 175 degrees C. Grease a slice tin or lamington tin.
  2. Make lavender sugar by blending the sugar and 2 teaspoons lavender buds in a blender; blend until the lavender is powdered.
  3. Blend together with an electric mixer 1/4 cup of the lavender sugar, butter, coconut oil, 2 cups flour and salt in a bowl until a dough forms; press into the bottom of the prepared dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the top begins to turn golden brown; about 15 minutes.
  5. While the dough bakes, mix together the remaining lavender sugar, 1/4 cup flour, eggs, lemon juice, lemon essence, and 1/2 teaspoon lavender buds; pour over the baked crust and return to the oven to bake until the centre is set, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely and dust with icing sugar before serving.

Subtle lavender taste, but very nice - great for afternoon tea! Easy to make too. - 19 Dec 2015
