Did you know that there are many uses for Amoretti Premium Syrups aside from beverage flavorings? By experimenting with various uses for floral beverage syrups, you’ll find that you suddenly have many more options in the kitchen!
One of the most unique non-beverage uses for Amoretti Premium Violet Lavender Syrup is for a freshly made pound cake. Floral beverage syrups drizzled over freshly baked goods is always a delight, and lavender adds a flavor that no one can resist! The secrets to this heavenly recipe are found below.
Pound Cake Recipe
- 2 cups of flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup whole milk
First, mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. When everything is thoroughly mixed, begin whisking in one egg at a time, beating well before adding the next one. Add the milk, butter, and zest. Mix thoroughly until completely smooth.
Take a pan that you’ve generously coated with butter and flour and begin spooning your batter into the pan. Allow the batter to completely flatten and smooth before you place into your preheated oven.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or until you can smoothly insert and remove a toothpick without any sticking.
One of the best ways to enjoy pound cake is with floral beverage syrups. The lightness of the lavender syrup perfectly complements the light flavor and texture that pound cake embodies.
As the pound cake is baking, it’s time to prepare the lavender syrup! Take ¾ cup of Amoretti Premium Violet Lavender Syrup and mix in 10 ounces of blueberries and 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Place into a glass container for easy serving.
Once the pound cake is done and cooled, slice evenly and lightly drizzle the lavender syrup over the freshly baked cake. You can either eat immediately or allow the syrup to soak into the cake. Feel free to garnish the plate with a few extra blueberries for decoration. In fact, you can even add a tiny pinch of edible lavender flowers! Enjoy!
