Cooking With Lavender: My Favorite Lavender Pound Cake

At this point you can leave the pound cake plain, or add a glaze.

For this particular cake I sliced strawberries into lavender simple syrup, crushing a few to release the juices and letting them sit and steep all day, absorbing all that goodness! The addition of the lavender simple syrup just really takes the berries over the top and is delicious on the cake! (Also wonderful on homemade vanilla ice cream, or with angel food cake!)
