I LOVE lavender. No really, it’s one of my favorite scents and flavors. Not everyone thinks of lavender when they think of cooking or baking but I’m telling you it adds such a unique flavor you have to try it.

I use dried lavender buds in a lot of my recipes, but be careful, they pack quite a lot of flavor. You don’t need much of these tiny little flavor bombs to create a wonderful dish.

Ingredients to Make Lavender Pancakes with Lavender Honey

  • all-purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • brown sugar
  • dried lavender buds (culinary/food grade)
  • unsalted butter
  • egg
  • milk
  • honey

How to Make Lavender Pancakes

  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar. Add the lavender buds and whisk to combine everything.
  2. Add the egg, milk, melted butter, and lemon zest to the dry ingredients and whisk again to mix everything together until the batter is smooth.
  3. Heat the griddle over med-high heat. Use non-stick spray or butter to grease the griddle. Once the griddle is hot, pour the batter in the middle to make a 6-8″ pancake. Once you see bubbles popping on the surface and all over the pancake, flip it and cook on the other side.

How to Make Lavender Honey

This is a very simple process. You should do this step first so that your lavender honey is infused with as much flavor as possible. You can even do this step a day ahead. Warm the honey in a saucepan over low heat, only to 100º. Remove from the heat and stir in the dried lavender buds. Allow the honey to infuse with the lavender as it cools. Strain out the buds if you want before serving. I leave them in because you can eat them and it looks good.

Is All Lavender Edible?

Yes, all lavender is technically edible. However, I highly recommend culinary lavender because it has the best taste and is sweeter than regular lavender which is more bitter. If you are buying dried lavender at the grocery store, it’s most likely culinary, but it doesn’t hurt to double-check. Culinary lavender is available online or you can also grow your own. Check your local nursery!
