Recipe Notes:

  • Be sure to use culinary lavender. You can also use lavender for candles, soaps, etc. So, be sure it is the stuff that is safe to eat.
  • Don’t go overboard with the dried lavender. A small amount will give you plenty of flavor. Also, chop it well..you don’t want large pieces of lavender in your cake.
  • Don’t over mix your batter. Simply mix it until there are no dry spots left in the batter. Over mixing may give you a dense cake.
