Lavender | Lemon Lavender Cake Recipe
Hey Cakenista's! My Bakers Box and I brought in the Spring with a delicious string of Lemon and Lavender flavors. If you haven't tried this tasty combination, allow me to guide you. Lemon and Lavender together create a perfect Springtime marriage. The zest and freshness from the lemon is beautifully balanced by the floral fragrance of the lavender.
Just like the rose, lavender is an edible flower that can also be added to savory dishes. I was introduced to lavender as an herb at my second culinary school. I made a lavender honey glaze for sautéed chicken breast and I've been hooked ever since. For those moments when I didn't have lavender in the pantry, I'd use thyme. Thyme isn't as floral, but the flavors are similar when used in savory dishes.
