Honey-Lavender Bread

Honey Lavender Bread with Lemon Glaze

What inspired me to create this recipe was my nostalgia for England. Around this time last year, I was studying abroad in London, doting over the adorable sets of afternoon tea I would always see at the hotel I was interning at. Lavender teacakes made an appearance at many an afternoon tea, and I have wanted to bake with lavender for a while now.

This honey lavender bread is the perfect accompaniment to a steaming cup of tea on a cold winter’s day. The honey’s floral notes combine with hints of lavender to create a sophisticated, soothing, sweet treat. Though the lemon glaze is an optional step, I highly recommend it because it compliments the lavender and honey flavors so nicely.

For the bread:

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbs fresh lavender
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
2 eggs
¾ cup milk (I used almond milk but any milk will do)
1 cup honey
6 Tbs butter
1 Tbs vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

  2. Combine the lavender and flour in a food processor until the lavender is finely chopped and homogenous with the flour.

  3. Pour the flour mixture into a bowl and add the baking powder and salt.

  4. To a separate bowl, add the eggs and whisk to break the yolks then add the milk and honey. Wisk to combine.

  5. Melt the butter in a small bowl, add the vanilla extract then add this butter mixture to the milk mixture while whisking to combine.

  6. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture into the wet ingredients using a wooden spoon.

  7. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

  2. Once bread is completely cooled, pour glaze over the top and let it drip down the sides.

Last step…

ENJOY!
