Ingredients and Tools Needed to Make the Cake

Before you start baking, ensure you have all the necessary ingredients and tools. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Cake flour: it is always good to use a good cake flour brand with low sodium for your baked goods
  • Baking powder and Baking soda: to help balance the flavor and to help the cake rise.
  • Salt: for seasoning and to balance the sugar content in the cake.
  • Ground cinnamon: seasoning
  • Ground Nutmeg: for seasoning
  • Butter: for moisture – use a good brand if you can.
  • Sugar: to sweeten the cake. You can use granulated sugar or raw sugar. If using raw sugar, decrease it by 2 tablespoons.
  • Eggs: at room temperature preferably and better for the cake batter.
  • Vanilla extract: for flavoring the cake
  • Fresh orange juice: for flavoring and moisture. Add more sugar if you substitute it with fresh lemon or grapefruit juice.
  • Sour cream: for moisture
  • Dried or fresh lavender: to flavor the cake.
  • Orange zest: also to flavor the cake.

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • Confectioner sugar plus more for serving. Try using powdered sugar without cornstarch.
  • Cream cheese: to moisture and flavor the cake.
  • Vanilla extract: for flavoring. You can make your own extract to save money.
  • Orange juice: to flavor the glaze
  • Milk: whole milk is better. Coconut milk works well also, but make sure you use one that does not contain a lot of fat.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large bowl or stand-up mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. It is time to stir the orange juice, zest, lavender flowers, and vanilla extract into the batter.
  • This step is important to avoid lumps. Sift the cake flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl. Combine the dried ingredients; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Beat just until combined.
  • Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, 55-60 minutes. See notes below on how to grease bundt pans.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Prepare the glaze per the instructions below and drizzle it over the cake.
