I adore lavender as ingredient in my baking experimentation. Its fine aroma makes you travel in green prairies and spring landscapes. Even in the middle of autumn. While baking this cake, the lavender essence conquers my kitchen and I really love it. The combination with lime and almond is a successful one according to my humble opinion. The result of my new experimentation is an extra special cake to accompany your tea of coffee.

If you are looking for an extra special cake, search no more. This is THE recipe for it.
