I’m a firm believer that there’s no better way to enjoy baked goods than when they’re first fresh out of the oven. It’s no wonder that I love to bake so much, especially when I know it’s my favorite that’s in the oven! I’m going to teach you what is, hands down, the best lemon lavender cake ever.

It’s also a 100% paleo-friendly recipe as well for any of you guys out there who are following the paleo diet (and if you’ve never tried it, I definitely recommend giving it a go). This cake is made with healthier ingredient options like almond flour and coconut sugar instead of refined wheat flour and sugar.

On top of it being a nice and low carb baked treat, the mix of dried lavender and lemon also give the cake a delightfully sweet and tangy citrus flavor that you’re going to absolutely love!
