Cloud cake

🍋Lemon lavender chamomile
🍊Blood orange lavender chamomile
Both equally delicious!

I love fresh lavender so I came up w a little variation on the average lemon loaf/pound cake, which I personally think is better than the famous Starbucks lemon loaf. Try for yourself and be the judge! I smashed the first loaf in one sitting🤷‍♀️.
•Pans:2 mini loaves Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 35 minutes Total Time: 60 minutes (includes cooling time) 🍋
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup 2% Greek Yogurt
1 Tbs. lemon juice OR blood orange juice
2 Tbs chamomile tea(wet)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. lemon zest OR blood orange zest
1 Tbs. dried lavender •for the glaze:
1/4 cup powdered sugar (more or less, depending on desired consistency)
2 Tbs. milk or almond milk
Dash of vanilla extract 🍋
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease one 9x5 (or two 5.75x3 mini) loaf pan and set aside. Or line with parchment paper. •In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. •In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter. Gradually add the sugar and cream until light and fluffy, about 7 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing each until fully incorporated.
•Slowly add the dry ingredients, alternating with the Greek yogurt, to the creamed butter and sugar and mix just until incorporated. Add the lemon juice, tea, vanilla extract and lemon zest and beat on low just until blended. Gently stir in the lavender. 🍊
•Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s) and bake for 30-35 minutes until the edges begin to brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool in the loaf pans for 10-15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack
•for the glaze:
Combine the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract and stir until well combined. Adjust the powdered sugar/milk ratio to reach desired consistency. 🍊
•Pour the glaze on top of the cooled loaves to avoid it running all over the place. It takes about 20 mins to become a solid glaze and no longer wet.
