Blueberry, Lemon and Lavender Frangipane Cake #CakeSliceBakers

Over Christmas, my family spent a couple days in Savannah, GA where we stumbled upon a Lavender shop.  Having been stymied in my search for culinary lavender before, I quickly bought a container and placed it in my baking box where it sat, unused, until this month.  Imagine my great joy to see that one The Cake Slice Baker choice for this month included lavender.  

The recipe made 8 4-inch cakes, baked in individual mini tart pans.  Each cake had lemon curd sandwiched between almond cake batter with a handful of blueberries dropped on top.  

The cakes were a big hit with my family.  They were moist and delicious.  And as lovely as they were for dessert that night, they were just as good for breakfast the next morning.

Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is The New Way To Cake by Benjamina Ebuehi. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.

It is a new year and a new book - The New Way To Cake - and our choices for June 2020 were ~


  1. I could definitely have this cake for breakfast! Beautiful.

  2. Your little tarts are absolutely gorgeous. I used lavender extract as I had no culinary lavender. What a fun stop on your trip.

  3. Delicious! Makes me want to make them!

  4. We loved this lemony, tender cake! The addition of the curd in the middle is just genius!

  5. Your tarts look perfectly baked! What a great combination of flavors.
