Lavender Wedding Shower Ideas

I’m sharing part two of my lavender wedding shower series I designed with Cassidy Carson Photography with this delicious lavender-lemon pound cake! Taking my favorite parts of a recipe from Bake Your Day, I baked this pound cake that I think would be the perfect addition to my lavender lemonade recipe I shared a few weeks ago.  I had never baked with dried lavender before, but I love the flowery flavor it offers! The simple lemon glaze was to die for as well. Give this recipe a try for your next event, and let me know how it goes in the comments section! Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. baking soda

1/8 tsp. salt

1/2 cup of butter softened

1 cup of sugar

3 eggs

1 Tbs. lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbs dried lavender

Glaze

juice of one lemon

1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar / 170g

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

With a stand mixer, cream the butter. Gradually add sugar and cream until light and fluffy (about 7 minutes.) Add eggs one at a time.

Slowly add the dry ingredients.

Add lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Beat on low until blended.

Gently stir in dried lavender.

Pour into a greased 9X5 loaf pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in middle of cake. Let cool 15-20 minutes in pan before removing.

Pour glaze over cake after fully cooled.
