Lavender + Lemon = Spring
I’ve got spring fever in a bad way. While my husband and son lament the melting snow (it signals the end of snowboarding season) I’m jumping for joy at every bit of sun and warmer temperatures. I know it will get wet and cold again, but I’m loving the promise of spring just around the bend.
To celebrate the coming season I decided to make my favorite Citrus Lemon Bundt Cake. Instead of lemon pudding I added vanilla pudding (it was all I had on hand). At the last second, I got out my miniature bundt cake pan instead and made 36 mini-cakes.
Then an idea came: what if I add lavender to the glaze? Why not? So I adapted the glaze a bit to make it a lavender-lemon flavor.
Heavenly. Mouthwatering. And oh, so cute. I’ve got big plans for these cakes.
The vanilla pudding didn’t hurt the flavor of the cakes at all. I love how moist they are, and the lavender flavor is a most delicious addition. I want to experiment a little bit more with the glaze recipe, but I’ll share it when it’s perfect.
What are you doing to welcome spring?
