Organic Elderflower Cordial

I was delighted to try Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower Cordial, I had never had Elderflower cordial before so I was very intrigued to try it.

Elderflower cordial is a fantastic alternative to alcohol and has an amazing refreshing taste,sweet and floral with a slight twang of lemon,a perfect combination, I loved the refreshing taste, perfect served chilled on a hot summers day.


Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower Cordial is not only fantastic to drink, but to show how amazingly versatile Elderflower Cordial is, Belvoir teamed up with celebrity chef Sophie Conran to create some tasty recipes.

Here is my favourite Recipe

Sophie Conran’s Elderflower Fairy Cakes


For the Cake’s
100g butter, softened
100g sugar
2 eggs
100g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the Elderflower Caramel Topping
100g caster sugar
25g unsalted butter
25ml Belvoir elderflower cordial
100ml double cream

Method

It is so simple to make these fairy cakes:
“These fairy cakes are basically quite a simple sponge mixture”, says Sophie. “As fairy cakes use the same ingredients as any sponge cake, most cake recipes can be used to make fairy cakes. You can try adding other things to the mixture, like spices, raisins, cocoa powder, broken up pieces of chocolate, mashed banana or even grated carrot to make mini carrots cakes.”Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C for a fan oven
Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and use a wooden spoon to beat together until pale, light and fluffy.
Beat the eggs in a jug then gradually add to the butter mixture, beating well between additions.
Sift over the flour and baking powder then gently fold in along with the vanilla extract.
(If all that mixing by hand looks a bit too much like hard work simply put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a hand-held blender although you may need to do this bit if you have very young children)
Line a cupcake tin with paper cake cases and half fill each case with the cake mixture.
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until the cakes have risen and look golden. Cool on a rack then decorate.
Decorating your fairy cakes:
“Frosting and decorations are defining characteristics of a fairy cake. There are different ways of icing your fairy cakes but I like to ice them with either simple sugar icing, or butter icing better still try this delicious elderflower caramel icing which is also great on ice cream or pancakes”, says Sophie.
Heat the sugar, butter and a tablespoon of water in a small pan on a medium/high heat.Stir a little until it starts to brown. Stir in the double cream and allow to bubble for another 5 minutes or until all the sugar has dissolved and you have a smooth sauce. Lastly, add the cordial and stir through. Keep warm until needed.
