Lavender cream. Cook 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream and a scant 1/4 teaspoon dried culinary lavender in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Cool completely, then strain. Stir in another 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 tablespoon sugar, then whip to soft peaks. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
I made this recipe when it first was published in Sunset Magazine and it was a hit! The Lavender whipped cream was INCREDIBLE! The waffles are quite filling and the blueberries help to lighten up the richness. I'm making it again this weekend for a birthday brunch and I CAN'T WAIT!
