Chocolate Pound Cake with Lavender Glaze Gluten Free Recipe


By Helen Tzouganatos, HUNGRY & FUSSY.

Chocolate and lavender a perfect pairing? Who knew? I certainly didn’t until I was introduced to culinary lavender by a friend who owns a lavender farm in Tasmania. I can’t wait to visit the farm with my kids one day to watch them run wild through the vibrant purple lavender fields. A photographer’s dream!
In this simple recipe the fragrant lavender cuts beautifully through the richness of the dark chocolate cake. Not only is this a deliciously surprising flavour combination, but the texture of this pound cake is gorgeous. The addition of boiling water helps to create a unique spongy texture that is super moist, decadently dark and rich in chocolate flavour.

Be careful when cooking with culinary lavender as a little goes a long way. I’ve only used one teaspoon in the glaze. The good news is dried lavender stores for a long time so it will not go to waste.
If lavender isn’t your thing feel free to replace the icing with a straight chocolate glaze or dusting of icing sugar. I’ll be daydreaming of gorgeous lavender fields whilst enjoying a mouthwatering slice of this cake with my favourite cuppa.
