with Lavender Elderflower Glaze
Ok, y’all! This cake was a crazy experiment that turned out to be AMAZING! I made it to represent some of my favorite cocktails, which typically include gin, lemon and St-Germain elderflower liqueur. Additionally, I had a bunch of meyer lemons that I had recently purchased and needed to use up. So, of course, I turned to the almighty internet for inspiration for this amazing Meyer lemon elderflower cake .
You know what you get when you Google “Elderflower cake?” Well, apparently you get several copy-cat recipes of the more recent royal wedding cake. Yep, I had no idea that flavor combo was even trending. Seems like I need to update myself on the royals….
Anyway, long story short, and several unwanted royal wedding news sites later, I decided to just go for it and combine my baking knowledge with a few inspirational recipes… and this Meyer lemon elderflower cake was born! Other favorite dessert ideas are: Brown Butter and Pecan Rum Cake, Chai Spiced Rice Krispies Treats with Nutella Cream Drizzle, and Spiced Chocolate Ganache Tart with Biscoff Cookie Crust.
I can’t get over how beautiful this is!
Thank you so much! Please let us know if you try it!
Love this recipe and so want to try it! Want to ask if there is any replacement for elderflower liquor and tonic? Elderflower extract is all I can get here in India… would hugely appreciate your inputs
Ooo good question! You would need to replace the liquid in the recipe with something else… potentially milk. Or you could try a regular flavored tonic with the Elderflower extract and adjust the ratio to account for the removal of the liqueur. You will also need to account for the removal of the liqueur, or replacement, to make the sauce soak. You could use a different liquor like gin or rum, although it will change the flavors a bit. Id love to hear what you try and how it turns out!!
