Lavender cake

I love the idea of using things I can grow such as lavender or local things like honey in my food, don’t you? Someone was talking about a lavender cake and I thought, what flavors would go great with that? I decided that honey and lemon were perfect and set out to make a cake that would knock your socks off. Here’s what I came up with.

This cake is baked in a Bundt pan. We used mini bunts for a fun treat. Make sure all ingredients are room temperature, especially the eggs and butter. Having your ingredients at room temperature gives any cake a better structure and texture.

The combination of lemon and lavender is a marriage made in heaven. Just a back note of floral lavender with delicious bright fresh lemon as the main flavor. The honey glaze is the icing on the cake so to speak that makes the flavors sing.

I didn’t add a ton of lavender because I didn’t want the cakes to taste like soap. I came up with the perfect amount.

I know you’ll enjoy this honey lavender cake with lemon and it’s beautiful for your next party too! I made a bunch of these for a bake sale at a garden open house event and it was the only thing we sold out of. They are so pretty because of the bundt shape, they are great for events such as that. I hope you try it!
