Lavender Cupcake Recipe

My mum and I made these delicious cupcakes for my first Essential Oils class last month! They turned out great, and I had a lot of my friends ask for the recipe, so here it is.

Cupcakes
2 ¾ cups cake flour
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon sea salt
¾ cup butter, softened
4 large egg whites, plus 1 whole large egg
1 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2 drops lavender essential oil

Buttercream Icing
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
1 drop lavender essential oil

Directions
Preheat oven to 350F.
Put cupcake liners into muffin tins.
Mix dry ingredients on slow speed for 2 minutes to blend.
Add the soft butter and mix until evenly crumbly.
Add egg whites one at a time, then add the whole egg, beating well after each addition to begin building the structure of the cake. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with each egg addition.
In a small bowl, whisk milk with vanilla and Lavender essential oil. Add to the batter ⅓ cup at a time. Beat 1 to 2 minutes after each addition, until fluffy. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.

In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla, 1 tablespoon of the milk and 1 drop lavender essential oil.
Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.

I hope you enjoy!

    1. I love using it for cooking, you should definitely try it! doTERRA essential oils are safe to ingest, so as long as you’re using doTERRA oils or research whatever you are using to make sure it’s safe, you’re good to go!
