    This is a beautiful tea cake and a tasty way to use lavender. It's especially good with fresh sliced strawberries in season.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 3/4 cup (190ml) milk
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh lavender
    • 125g butter, softened
    • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 cups plain flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 165 degrees C. Grease and flour a 23x13cm loaf tin.
    2. Combine the milk and lavender in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat to a simmer, then remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly.
    3. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg until the mixture is light and fluffy. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the milk and lavender until just blended. Pour into the prepared tin.
    4. Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Cool in the tin on a wire rack.
