Spotlight on AWEsome, part II Eclectic Armadillo

Today, Sarah  from EclecticArmadillo and Sarahsquiltsncrafts  would like to share her favorite recipe with us!   For those who have never used Lavender in baking, it gives your goodies a very interesting taste.  If you feel the need to adjust the lavender, adjust down.  Adding too much lavender makes your creation too perfumey.  Enjoy!

Lavender Pound Cake

2 and ¼ cup all purpose flour, sifted
2 cups granulated sugar
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda
3 eggs
1 cup butter, salted
1 cup plain yogurt
2 TBSPS lavender buds, food grade
2 TBSPS fresh lemon zest

Combine: all the ingredients in a large bowl, blend at low speed for a minute till mixed then beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour into a Bundt pan (loaf pan, or cookie sheet for squares works, too). Bake at 325 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Test for doneness. Let sit for 5 minutes, then invert onto a plate.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 TBSP melted butter
3-4 tsp lemon juice

Great source for lavender buds:
