Lemon lavender cake--This recipe is perfect. The lavender gives the brightness of the lemon such a wistful nostalgic romance. It's a dense, heavenly cake. And the glaze sweetens it to just the right level. Keep in mind it makes a lot--two loaf pans. So cut it in half, or plan to share it with a friend. They will think you are amazing.
