(Liz) Lemon Lavender Bundt Cake

Friday, November 26, 2010

I love my Heritage bundt pan so much. It was a gift from two of my closest friends! I've only used it a couple times, and always for the Snickerdoodle cake, which seems to be everyone's favorite. I decided it was time to try out a different cake in it. I love going through recipes (I check food blogs and sites very often) and I have so many bookmarked away. I finally decided to try an oldie that I had heard a lot about... the lemon-lavender bundt cake from William-Sonoma. People seem to really enjoy it, and the butter content wasn't too bad... I cut it down by a quarter but I think next time I'll leave it in there, since the cake could have been softer.

Either way, it looked great. It had more of a lemon flavor than lavender, but it was nice seeing the little bits of dried lavender, and the lemon honey glaze on top was just right with the rest of it.

I don't know if I would make this cake again, because I'm not a huge fan of lemon, but I think it's a good one to keep in your repertoire if you're in the mood (or if you're like me, and just wanted to use up the dried lavender you've had for ages). OR you've just been watching a lot of 30 rock, like Joe and I have. I think I can say making the cake was a little bit Liz Lemon-inspired :)
