Lemon + thyme.



I had one of these cupcakes yesterday afternoon whilst enjoying a horticulturally-themed day out, and it was so delicious! The cake was fresh, sweet, and herb-scented, and the frosting too was delicately flavoured with thyme and lemon.

Now currently dreaming up ways of incorporating lemon + thyme into my next baking project…

p.s. Also, so excited for it this evening’s Great British Bake Off episode! Hooray for bread week!

    I love using thyme in a lemon tart, or in the base of a baked lemon cheesecake, so good!

    I can’t wait to see the new episode from GBBO. I was telling my husband today that I didn’t bake bread in the last few weeks. The episode tonight should inspire me to make something in the following days.

    Ooh they look delicious! I can’t wait until GBBO tonight either, one of my many guilty pleasures. I hope someone doesn’t make something from scratch again so I can see Mary Berry’s look of disgust hahaha

    I’ve never used thyme with lemon while baking – they’re such a great combo though so I definitely will do! Would love to see some recipes if you come up with any :) xx
