Sieve all the dry ingredients together and slowly incorporate into the wet ingredients.
Using a large spatula, mix gently until a creamy smooth, lump- free batter forms.
(*Cook's Note: Be careful not to over mix your batter.)
Now gently fold in the dried lavender leaves or flowers.
(Cook's Note: Finely crush the lavender leaves or flowers to release a stronger more potent scent and flavour.)
Gently pour cake batter into a stoneware baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Ensure that you tap the cake tray on a hard surface to release any air bubbles.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees celsius for approximately 55-minutes to 1 hour.
Check to see if the cake is fully cooked through using a skewer.
Allow the cake to cool thoroughly before serving.
Slice and serve on its own.
