Feel inspired by the floral masterpieces in last night’s episode of Great British Bake Off?
We certainly are. So we’ve delved into our archives and delivered some of our favourite botanical-inspired baking recipes – just in time for the weekend.
From adding garden herbs to sweet desserts to creating rose, lavender or elderflower-flavoured cakes, discover how we can help you put a new twist on your baking.
Strawberry and elderflower trifle
Add an unexpected twist to this family favourite by adding a splash of elderflower pressé. If you have the time, making homemade custard for your trifle is well worth the effort, but if you’re short of time, ready-made still works a treat. Try it the recipe at home!
Saffron & rose water flan
You only need a pinch of saffron to add distinctive flavour and a rich golden colour to this grown-up flan. With pretty orange slices and crushed pistachio, this recipe is sure to wow guests at your next get-together.
Chocolate-filled rosebud meringues
These pretty rosebud meringues would make a gorgeous thoughtful gift or a showstopping dessert at the end of your meal. As the pink little treats are perfectly bite-sized, why not serve them up with an afternoon cuppa? Give them a go!
