I woke up the other day, the sun was up and I saw a beautiful yellow cropping of dandelions in the back of my garden. They had sprouted over night. Since I don’t use any chemicals in my garden I had the idea of using their natural taste in the kitchen. I asked my daughter to help me collect the flowers and leaves, as they are the best for a salad when young. We ended up with a full basket after only about 10 minutes. We put to the side what we needed for the infused oil but there were still some flower petals left. So we said lets experiment and try something new. As my daughter is hooked on sweet stuff, the idea of dandelion cupcakes popped up. I have to be honest this was the first time we tried something like this. But they turned out to be so delicious that I just had to share it with you. The dandelion blossoms taste mildly sweet and floral and it gives unique taste to the cupcakes.
