Lavender is one of our favorite flavors. While lavender flavoring is found in chocolates and ice creams, this Lavender Tea Bread is the next treat we will be enjoying with a hot cup of tea!
Lavender Tea Bread
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. dried lavender flowers, finely chopped, or 3 Tbsp. fresh chopped flowers
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
Grease a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Heat milk with lavender almost to a boil, then steep until cool.
Mix flour, baking powder and salt together in bowl.
In another bowl cream butter and gradually add sugar, then eggs, one at a time, beating until light and fluffy.
Add flour mixture alternately with lavender milk, in three parts. Mix until batter is just blended, do not overbeat.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool.
When completely cool, drizzle with a simple sugar glaze or sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Garnish with sprigs of fresh lavender.
I like to make a light lemon confectioners sugar glaze for mine
but it is up to your tastes!
1 cup Powdered sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 spoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp Soy milk or regular milk
NOTE; you can also use Sage, Rosemary, or Thyme for this bread too !
