Lemon, Lavender and Honey Cake

Recently, I acquired a copy of Love Bake Nourish by New Zealand baker Amber Rose.  The pictures in the book are swoon-worthy, and I like the fact that she uses alternative flours, including spelt, polenta and nut meals.

I wanted to whip up something quick to take to work this week, so I chose Amber's Lemon, Lavender and Honey Cake.  The recipe is online here.

I loved the dense, moist, crunchy qualities of this cake, and that both the citrus and lavender tastes both came through clearly in the final bake.  Here's a slice to give you a peek inside:

This is one delicious cake, and I am looking forward to trying some more of Amber's creations in the near future.
