Feb 3, 2021

In this blog post, we are excited to present you with an irresistible recipe for a Lemon Lavender Pound Cake that will leave your taste buds wanting more.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt


Follow these easy steps to create a spectacular Lemon Lavender Pound Cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare a 9x5-inch loaf pan by greasing it with butter or lining it with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the lemon zest and dried lavender flowers.
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Begin and end with the flour mixture. Mix just until combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, ensuring it is evenly distributed. Smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, slice the Lemon Lavender Pound Cake and serve. You can enjoy it as is or add a dusting of powdered sugar or a dollop of whipped cream for extra indulgence.
