Ingredients
  

Cake Ingredients

  • ½ c. Butter room temperature (to make the spell go smoothly)
  • ½ c. Sugar (to sweeten up the spell)
  • 2 Eggs (to add creative energy)
  • 1 ½ c. Self-rising Flour (to bring in prosperity)
  • tsp. Salt (to add protection)
  • ¼ c. Milk (to add the energy of the Goddess)
  • 1 Lemon zested (to call in friendship)
  • 1 tsp. Lavender (to call in peace)
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract (to call in love)

Cake Liquor

  • 1.5 Lemons juiced
  • c. Powdered Sugar

Cake Glaze

  • ½ Lemon juiced
  • ½ c. Powdered Sugar

Instructions
 

Bake the Cake

  • Preheat your oven to 355 F.
  • Butter a 8” x 4” loaf pan with butter and set aside. Add parchment for easy removal, optional of course.
  • In a large bowl, cream the ½ c. butter and the ½ c. sugar.
  • Slowly add the 2 eggs and the lemon zest.
  • When incorporated, fold in the 1 ½ c. flour, salt, vanilla extract, and teaspoon of lavender until well combined.
  • Add milk and stir one last time. The batter will be thick.
  • Pour into your prepared bread tin and bake for 45 minutes, or until skewer poked in the center comes out clean.

Make the Cake Liquor

  • During the last 10 minutes of baking time, make a cake-moistening drizzle with the juice of 1.5 lemons and ⅞ cup of powdered sugar in a small bowl.
  • When the cake is done, poke holes in the top of the loaf and drizzle the sweet liquid all over the hot cake.
  • Cool completely in the pan.

Glaze the Cake

  • In a small bowl, mix together 1 ½ cups of powdered sugar with the juice of half a lemon.
  • Spread the icing over the cooled cake and decorate with the pinch of lavender!
