Couldn’t resist, had to share a sneak peek of my current Cosplay! Been almost finished for a few weeks now! Just small stuff and accessories now!
While the poses aren’t exact, I think we know where the inspiration for the back cover of the Moon Pride album came from!
Berry Upside-Down Lavender Pound Cake with Vanilla Sugar Icing
- 1 c. canola oil
- 2 1/4 c. sugar
- 5 eggs
- 2 T. lavender flowers
- 3 c. all-purpose flour
- 1 c. lemon-lime soda
- 1 T. lemon and/or lime juice
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 c. blueberries & blackberries
- 1 c. powdered sugar
- 2-6 T. milk
- 1/2 t. vanilla extract
To make the cake, preheat your oven for 325*F.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the oil and sugar together with a wire whisk. Add each egg one at a time, whisking the mixture between additions. Mix well until the entire mixture is as yellow as the egg yolks.
In a large bowl, fold the lavender flowers into the flour with a mixing spoon. Slowly pour the soda into the mix, and stir it in thoroughly. Add the citrus juice and vanilla extract, and stir those in thoroughly as well.
Pour the contents of the medium-sized bowl into the large one. Stir it up until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Generously grease a bundt cake pan with either butter or non-stick spray, and pour the batter into it. Let the batter settle, and then scatter the berries around the inside of the pan. Feel free to add more berries if you’d like a thicker layer of them.
Set a timer for 1 hour & 10 minutes, and put the cake in the oven.
To make the icing, get a bowl—like a cereal bowl—and mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together until the mixture has a mild viscosity. Add more milk as is needed.
When the cake is done, pry its sides from those of the pan with a butter knife, and shake it out onto a large plate. Generously drizzle the icing over the cake, and top with extra lavender if you like.
I made a thing, and you too can all make the thing.
Quick question as a Brit: when you say “lemon-lime soda” is that meaning lemonade or soda water? Because there’s a significant difference in sugar content and I’m not sure how to translate the American here.
(Otherwise, it looks like a wonderful recipe and I can’t wait to try it!)
I’m going to rough guess and say use Sprite or 7-Up or the cheap version of that. Lemonade as it is in the UK is like a lemon-lime soda but it wouldn’t have the lime flavor and it tastes a bit different depending on the type. (I was over in Scotland for 6 months. The -ade beverages threw me when I was looking into them.) Lemonade for us lacks carbonation, whereas it just seems to be soda over there.
Yeah, that’s correct. It requires a lemon and lime-flavored, carbonated, non-alcoholic beverage.
