2008_09_18-CoffeeCake.jpgWe baked this delicious, moist coffee cake that's made with polenta, lavender flowers, sultanas soaked in brandy, and a honey-based glaze.

The recipe is taken from Essentials of Baking: Recipes and Techniques for Successful Home Baking and was very easy to make. The polenta adds a corny sweetness to the cake, and the brandy-soaked sultanas give some moisture to the corn-based cake. The topping of dried lavender flowers adds a herby, earthy bite to the cake. And it's very pretty!
