nope, haven't tried this one yet, either

Glazed Lavender Tea Cake

1 cup granulated sugar
5 tablespoons butter, softened
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 tablespoons chopped lavender flowers
Cooking spray

1/3 cup sifted powered sugar
1 teaspoon water
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. To prepare cake, beat granulated sugar, butter, and ½ teaspoon vanilla at medium speed of a mixer until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add egg and egg white, 1 at a time; beat well after each addition. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir well. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with yogurt, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in lavender.

3. Pour the batter into an 8-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

4. To prepared glaze, combine powered sugar with remaining ingredients. Spread over hot cake. Cool in pan 20 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 1 slice). (it's probably more like 2-3 servings, but I've yet to test that theory)
