    elsokolj's Note:

    I made this cake few times already and it is always a success. Easy to do, very refreshing. Brought it to my DH Christmas stuff party and everything was gone. Something different without being weird. I think I got this recipe from Familly Circle magazine few years ago. The recipe makes 2 loves.

      Super De-lish! Worked OK when I halved the recipe for one loaf, too. I used a little more lavender then the recipe called for and it wasn't too strong. I love lavender!!! :-) We were very impressed with the texture of the cake. Thanks Heidi!

      I didn't do the glaze. I did only 1 cake. Maybe I should have made 2 like you suggested. It's so easy to eat. It's moist a lot. And so tasty. The lavender is the perfect quantity. For 1 cake, it was 1 cup of sugar. But I used 3/4 cup. I used vegetable oil instead of butter. Thanks Heidi. Made for Alphabet chef.

      PAC Spring 2007 - made this thinking it would last a few days. Surprise company appears and loved this cake. Very light, served with no drizzled frosting, just fresh fruit. Very nice to serve with coffee or tea to guests. Thanks for sharing!
