  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Homemade whipped cream, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, almond flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until just combined.
  6. Fold in the dried lavender.
  7. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each biscuit.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.
  9. While the biscuits are baking, prepare the strawberries. In a medium bowl, toss the strawberries with the sugar.
  10. Let the biscuits cool for a few minutes before assembling the shortcakes. To assemble, split each biscuit in half and spoon some of the strawberries and their juice onto the bottom half. Top with a dollop of homemade whipped cream, then place the top half of the biscuit on top. Repeat with remaining biscuits.
  11. Serve immediately.


  • For a stronger lavender flavor, use fresh lavender instead of dried culinary lavender.
  • Serve the shortcakes with additional fresh strawberries and whipped cream on top for an extra special touch.
  • These shortcakes are best served fresh, but any leftover biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
