Almond and Lavender Bundt CakeCake Ingredients for Almond Lavender Bundt CakeMaking Lavender Icing

Earlier this week I went to the eye doctor to get my eyes checked. I’ve never gotten my pupils dilated and had no idea what the expect. When I got home I told myself that everything was alright and started working – but apparently when the eye doctor dilates your pupils your eyeballs refuse to look at a computer screen or anything bright.

For a moment I had absolutely no idea what to do. I just sat there trying to relax but it didn’t really work out. So I did the only thing that wouldn’t bother my eyes…bake a cake.

Recipe for Almond and Lavender Bundt Cake

I was so impressed with how delicious this cake turned out. It feels like the perfect treat to enjoy during a warm spring day. It was so good I went for a second slice (maybe a third, whatevs…).

For the lavender icing I used Monin Lavender Syrup but I am sure you can use dried lavender but I haven’t been able to get my hands on that in any local grocery store. So this syrup does the job. :)
