It’s time for #SpringSweetsWeek 2024 hosted by Heather from Hezzi-D’s Recipe Box! Spring may not officially start until tomorrow, March 19th, but the sun has been shining and we are celebrating with plenty of spring sweets and a fun giveaway!

This year 17 food bloggers from around the country are sharing over 50 sweet recipes that are perfect for spring. So get ready to enjoy amazing spring treats like cupcakes, ice cream, pies, cakes, and more!

A huge thanks to our #SpringSweetsWeek sponsors that are helping us give away some great prizes. Thank you to Melissa’s Produce, Taylor and Colledge, and Selefina Spices for your generosity and support. We have an incredible giveaway this year with three amazing prizes which you can read about HERE before entering using the Rafflecopter at the end of this post.

Melissa's Produce Meyer Lemons and Taylor and Colledge Lavender Extract Paste.

The first thing that I made for this week was lavender lemon creme brulee, made with not just any lemons, but Melissa’s Produce Meyer lemons! And then instead of vanilla I used lavender extract paste from Taylor & Colledge.

While you use the zest from two lemons, you only need the juice from one. Therefore, I decided to slice up the second one and place it on top before torching the sugar. Why be wasteful?

Normally, my husband hates floral flavors in food but lavender is thankfully one he can enjoy. But it’s not overpowering in this lavender lemon creme brulee in case you are apprehensive about it.

I particularly love lavender and lemon together as evident by my list of recipes featuring that combo such as shortbread cookies, whoopie pies, chess pie, madeleines, and even lavender vodka lemonade.

Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat



  1. Zest the two lemons; zest aside. Juice one of the lemons; set aside. Slice the remaining lemon; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line the bottom of a large baking pan with a damp kitchen cloth.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to boil.
  4. While water is boiling, combine cream, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tbsp lemon zest, and salt in saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally 4 -5 minutes, until steam rises.
  5. In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, and lavender extract until smooth. Slowly drizzle hot cream into yolks, a little at a time, stirring constantly, until all the cream is incorporated. Pour mixture into four 6 oz ramekins.
  6. Place ramekins on towel in baking dish, and place dish on oven rack. Pour boiling water into dish to halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Cover whole pan loosely with foil.
  7. Bake 40-45 minutes, until centers are barely set. Chill ramekins in refrigerator 4-6 hours.
  8. Before serving, place a lemon slice on top of each, sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over each. Use a kitchen torch* (or broiler placed 3 inches away) to brown top, 2-3 minutes.


    *If you don't have a kitchen torch, you don't NEED one but they are definitely fun to play with. I found mine a few years ago in the hardware section at Walmart.
