Ingredients

  • 220 g butter
  • 450 g white caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of edible lavender plus extra for decoration - crush in a pestle and mortar
  • 350 g vanilla yoghurt
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • The seeds of 1 vanilla pod not necessary but a nice addition
  • 1 teaspoon of lavender extract not necessary & will work without

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to gas 150 (fan) 160 (regular)
  • Grease the tin well. I use melted butter and paint it on with a pastry brush and when that has cooled a dusting of flour which helps to find any places on the tin I’ve missed to grease. (good on this tin as it is so detailed)
  • In the mixer cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing in well each time. The mixture will get lighter.
  • In a separate bowl measure out and sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and add the crushed lavender.
  • Add the yoghurt and extracts into the butter/sugar/egg mixture and mix well.
  • Mix the flour mix in slowly until all the flour has disappeared.
  • Put the mixture in the tin.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. When the cake pulls away from the edge of the tin the cake is ready.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the tin before turning out.
  • Decorate and enjoy.

Notes

Make sure you buy edible lavender and use a pestle and mortar to crush it up well. It is so pretty.
