Lavender cake with Lavender glaze

Gail Herbest


This is so delicious, It has a very
delicate flavor of Lavender and is so pretty. A few months ago I purchased dried Lavender from Penzeys spices, not thinking how much 4 oz would be when it came to Lavender I have a large bag of it.
this afternoon I decided to experiment and see what I could come up with I made only a one layer cake since I had not tried this before. It turned out better than I expected and will be one of my favorites from now on.

How to Make Lavender cake with Lavender glaze


  1. To make Lavender water in a glass bowl add the lavender to the boiling water and let it sit for 2 hours, using a small wire mesh strainer pour water into another bowl or jar
  2. Make cake as directed on the box substituting the liquid with Lavender water,
    Bake as you normally would
  3. Remove cake from oven and cool, remove from pan and invert onto a platter.
    allow cake to cool completely, then drizzle the Lavender glaze over the top
  4. **** I pour any left over lavender water into a container and place in the refrigerator, great for making pancakes or biscuits, just substitute the regular water that is called for in the recipe
