  • 6 Tbsp. softened butter
  • 1 cup white sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan (or 3 small pans; 3 1/2 x 6-inch pans).

Combine the milk and finely chopped lavender in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat to a simmer, then remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly.

With a hand mixer, in a medium mixing bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar until smooth. Mix in the eggs, Greek yogurt, vanilla and lemon zest.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; gently mix into the creamed mixture alternately with the milk and lavender, until just blended.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s).

Bake for 60 minutes (loaf pan). For the 3 small pans, bake for 40 minutes.

To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla. Poke holes with a fork into each loaf (about 6-8 times per loaf). Spread glaze over hot cake and sprinkle Porch Nook's Organic Culinary Lavender when it melts on the warm cake. Cool in pan 20 minutes on a wire rack; remove each loaf from the pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

Enjoy!
