Lavender cake with Lavender glaze
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
- 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
- Make cake as directed on the box substituting the liquid with Lavender water,
Bake as you normally would
- 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
- **** 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
