Whisk the eggs and sugar until pale and creamy. Add lemon juice, melted butter and lavender. Mix until combined.
Sift in the flour with baking powder and mix with a mixer until well combined. Pour the batter into a 2 pound loaf tin lined with baking paper.
Bake in a preheated oven at 360°F/180°C for 40-45 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Right after you take out the bread from the oven, pour over it the sweetened lemon juice. Let the bread cool down before slicing.
Optional: Arrange candied lemon slices on the loaf or on each slice.
In a wide-bottom sauce pan/pot heat the sugar and water until the sugar is melted. Thinly slice lemon and put in inside the pot. Simmer for 20 minutes. Place two paper kitchen towels onto a plate and transfer the slices onto the plate. Let them cool down. If you want to speed up the chilling process, place the plate in your fridge.
