I figured it would be best to use applesauce since it doesn't have a strong flavor, and orange zest to play off the lavender. I was a little worried that it might taste like perfume, but it only has a slight hint of flowers. I also added a sucanat sugar crumble to the top. I think I would infuse the milk with a bit more lavender next time, but this turned out moist and light perfect to go with a hot cup of tea.
