Lemon flower cake l a splash of vanillaI know I said I’d be back in the new year but have a couple of lovely recipes to post from Christmas.

Mostly I prefer a simple cake with one really great flavour.  Recently, I baked this sweet, lemony cake with a rich, soft crumb and added pretty edible flowers with fresh strawberries for a summery, festive effect.  I changed a couple of things – I halved the recipe and subbed Greek yoghurt for the buttermilk.

And these gorgeous edible flowers make everything look magical!  For Brisbanites, I purchased my edible flowers from Food Connect.
