Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

Butter and dust with sugar a 9 in loaf pan.

Sift the flour again with the sugar, baking powder and salt.

Set aside.

Whip the cream until stiff & stir in the eggs & vanilla.

Add the sifted dry ingredients & blend well.

Add the pecans.

Reserve 1/3 of the batter and stir in the strawberry lavender spread.

Pour 1/3 of plain batter into the loaf pan.

Add the strawberry batter.

Top with the remaining 1/3 of the plain batter.

Swirl through the batter layers with a thick chop stick or kitchen knife to marbleize.

Bake for 55 minutes or until the center tests clean.

Transfer the cake to a wire rack & cool for 10 minutes before turning out on a serving platter.

The spread makes very pretty ribbons of light lavender through the cake.
