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.
Lavender Supplies: Lavender from my garden (Cut matured lavender flowers just above the leaves) Rubber Bands Directions: Gather the lavender into a bunch. Tie the stems with a rubber band. Find a dark place to dry the lavender. Hang the lavender bunch upside down. Let the lavender dry 2-4 weeks.
