Heres one for summer...
« on: May 29, 2008, 09:07:48 am »
This is my all time favourite cake, watching my Lavender flowers daily waiting for them to bloom, those of you in sunnier climes wont have to wait as long

Lavender Victoria Sponge

6 oz Butter
6 0z Castor Sugar
6 oz Self Raising Flour
3 Large Egss beaten
3 Heaped teaspoons crushed, dried lavendar flowers (I also use fresh)
Double Cream

Beat sugar and butter till very pale and creamy. Add beaten eggs a little at a time. With last amount of egg add a little of the flour, then fold in rest of flour, adding flowers and folding in too.
Divide into 2 lined tins and bake for 20 mins at 375/190/ Gas 5.
Cool on wire rack then sandwich together with whipped cream, dust with icing sugar and decorate with 3 tiny sprigs of lavendar.
Enjoy....

I agree... very yummy indeed.

I usually make Lavendar Fairy cakes, the ingredients are the same, just divvied up into muffin cases, I top them with white icing and and a sprinkle of flowers and tiny silver balls...the kids love them  :)

 

Another one for summer.......
