Somehow my review got lost so am inputting again. unbelievably good and incredibly easy! It has such a fresh vibrant, light and lovely taste. I made this as a cake and also a few mini muffins because my loaf tin was shorter. Amazing both ways. In fact for a cocktail party i would make them as mini muffins they are so pretty. The lavender syrup just set it off perfectly. just a tip, don't use splenda in this. Made it for the 2nd time yesterday and by using 1/2 splenda i lost the wonderful airy quality of it

So very good! Unfortunately, my polenta wasn't fine enough, so looks a little coarse, but the taste was all I could ask for! Of course, it was enhanced by using Augerge de la Fontaine dried lavender flowers to make the syrup! And I didn't have fresh raspberries, but think the basic flavors were well represented! Thnx for sharing, FT! Made for KcK's Forum.

Lovely cake, but didn't think that 2 sprigs was enough to make it taste of lavender once the syrup was on the cake. I think I would use 4 or 5.
