How To Make Lavender Cake with Honey

I have been baking for a while now, but it wasn’t until recently that I started experimenting with creating my own recipes. When I was younger, I always just followed the instructions that were given to me. But, in time, as I got more comfortable in the kitchen, I decided to start trying some things on my own.

Recipe testing isn’t always pretty – and a lot of times things end up at the bottom of my trash can. But every once in a while, I hit the jackpot and come up with an AWESOME recipe. Today’s Honey Lavender Cake is one of those items.

Great Spring Cake Recipe

Honey has always been one of my favorite flavors. It always seems to bring out a certain richness in without making things overly sweet. However, I tend to avoid it in my own kitchen. It can be a little cumbersome to use, and even more annoying to clean up. It always gets everything sticky no matter how careful I am. And have you ever tried to clean up a honey spill? Let me tell you..it’s NOT FUN.

The adjusted one of my favorite vanilla cake recipes to add in some of that delicious honey flavor. Honey is much sweeter than sugar, so I had to go down on the sugar to make sure this bad boy was not overly sweet. But the honey does add a whole new flavor profile that I love.

I also love the combination of honey and lavender. This Honey Lavender Cheesecake is one of my most popular recipes on the blog. So to me, it was an obvious pairing. And I think the lavender flavor balances out the sweetness of the honey. It’s really a win-win.

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. โ›„๏ธ

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles โค๏ธ
