Another recipe I found on the William-Sonoma site that sounds great. Love lemon and have a lot of lavender that I grow so thought this would be pretty as well as yummy. Can't wait to try it out, but will save it here with all my recipes until I can get to it. If you make it, be sure your lavender is pesticide-free, probably the safest bet is to use it from your own garden or that of a friends. Edited to add forgotten flour in recipe - thanks Elisa for pointing it out! Finally made this and glad I did - I did make the frosting to thick instead of dripping down the sides and next time I'll be sure and do that. I added an extra half tsp. of Lemon Oil just to intensify the lemon flavor (we love Lemon in this house) and it was nice. A tart taste with just a hint of lavender with a texture that seemed almost layered, it's a small cake and the texture is heavier than most "cake" recipes I've tried, what I'd think of as a tea-cake - but we really liked it. I used lavender flowers right out of the garden and have to admit only used a 1/2 cup of ground almonds as I was tired of grinding.
