Lavender Lemon Bundt Cake

Roxanne's Dried Flowers in Pittsburgh, PA is one of my favorite shops to visit when I'm home. It is packed with beautiful interior decorations, statuary, and its namesake dried flowers. A place to wander, get inspired, and splurge when a too-tempting-to-resist item presents itself.

My latest trip to Roxanne's over Memorial Day weekend yielded the seasonal treasure of edible dried lavender. Lemon bundt cake seemed the only natural compliment to such a subtle flavor and I can't recommend this combo (and recipe) enough.

Baptisia, a delicate purple flower, from my mother's garden served as the perfect floral pairing.

The recipe comes straight from Williams-Sonoma, which seems fitting as the bundt pan used in this post is from the same shop.
