Lavender Lemon Bundt - I Like Big Bundts 2010
Lavender-Lemon Bundt

So, I'm making 30 Bundts in 30 days. All leading up to National Bundt Day on November 15th. I hope to inspire you to make a Bundt for friends, family, and co-workers. I did this last year (see the 30 Bundts here) and had some recipes that I didn't get to make. This Bundt from Williams Sonoma was one of them!

I made half the recipe and should have made 6 mini-bundts (the pan with 6 openings)...but I filled 5 openings and they overflowed! I trimmed the excess off the bottoms of these bundts.

I picked up a jar of dried lavender from Penzey's Spices. I love that store. If you aren't close to one of their stores, they have a nice catalog.

Lemon zest and lavender are in the batter, and a lemon, honey and powder sugar glaze is poured over the cake. This is light and delicate in flavor...a winner!

See you back here tomorrow for another Bundt! :) - mary the food librarian

I am obsessed with Penzey's...it is an hour away but so worth the drive.

Penzey's closest is 2 hours and in St. Louis but so fun to stroll through.
I love lavender and lemon. Have a cookie recipe with it and limoncello
Very pretty little cakes.
