BAKING cakes and sweet bakes

Lavender Milk Cake

May 31, 2014

I bring to you this cake as a good reminder of how lovely and versatile the milk cake can be. It’s soft as a pillow and moist and buttery. When it’s baking, the house is filled with the fragrance of summery lavender that’s just coming into bloom. To make the lavender milk cake, I rubbed the lavender buds into the sugar and went on with the recipe as usual (skipping the bay leaves). Slice up, and serve with a dribble of honey.

      Oh no! Sorry, but I have never baked in a microwave so I wouldn’t know.

    How much lavender did you use?

      2 tsp! If you want the lavender flavour to be milder, 1 tsp should be plenty.
