  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a loaf pan with non stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and cornmeal.
  • Using a whisk or wooden spoon, stir to remove any lumps.
  • Using an electric mixer, combine eggs, yolk, lemon zest, salt and sugar. Beat well for about 5 minutes on high speed until light in color, barely yellow and doubled in volume.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice and oil until thoroughly combined.
  • Add lavender and half of the flour mixture and then half of the lemon mixture, mixing well after each addition. Repeat.
  • Transfer to prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, until knife inserted comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  • Cool completely and slice.


Use fresh lemon juice. Bottled lemon juice won't yield the same flavor!
