This is really special. Who can image that you can combine orange and lavender together? I most definitely did not consider this combination to be possible. I like these two things separately or with other elements. Lavender with lemon or orange with chocolate. Now, consider this unique combination of citrus and floral. This is a winner in my book.
My weekends are dedicated to cooking and baking. Although I'm known to go overboard with baking, I had to consciously stop myself to only bake one sweet treat a week - unless I'm extremely stressed out. So this weekend, I wanted to make yogurt cake. But yogurt cake again?? It becomes so boring after five times. I need baking to be exciting and interesting. So here's another variation of Dorie Greenspan's French Yogurt Loaf - made even better.

In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 160C. Grease a large 9 inch non stick loaf pan. Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. Mix the sugars and the wet ingredients.
Add the dry to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. I baked mine in the oven for 40-50 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning it out on a rack to cool completely.
