Lavender Pound Cake Recipe

2 cup butter (4 sticks)
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
12 large eggs; separated
2 1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoon sweet sherry
1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers

Preheat oven to 325 F.

In a large bowl, cream the butter until it is light and fluffy. Combine flour and baking powder and gradually add to the butter, beating until the mixture is a smooth paste. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks and sugar; beat until thick and light. Add the sherry and lavender, then gradually beat in the butter and flour

In a separate bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks but are not dry. Quickly and gently fold the whites into the flour mixture. Turn the batter into a well-greased and floured 10" tube or bundt pan. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a straw inserted in the center comes out clean.
