Equipment

  • hand mixer
  • 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan
  • parchment paper

Ingredients
  

Lavender Lemon Loaf

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp lavender florets
  • 1 lemon’s worth of lemon zest
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk

Lemon Drizzle Icing

  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 lemon’s worth of lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Add the lavender florets and lemon zest. Mix well. (See image 2)
  • Next in a separate bowl, cream together the brown sugar and butter until smooth. I suggest using a mixer to do this.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, and add the vanilla, mix until well combined. (See image 4)
  • Add in the milk and flour mixture a little at a time, alternating between the two. Mix until batter is smooth. (See images 5 and 6)
  • Next line your 8.5 x 4.5 loaf pan with parchment paper. See tip 3 on how to do this.
  • Pour your lavender lemon loaf batter into your pan and make sure to tap the sides and bottom to get all the air bubbles out. (See image 7)
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the centre. It should come out cleanly when it’s done. (See image 8)
  • While your loaf is cooling, mix together the icing sugar and lemon juice to make your lemon drizzle icing.
  • Once your lavender lemon loaf has cooled, pull it out of the pan using the excess parchment paper on both sides and place it onto a plate. Then, evenly pour your icing over top.
  • Slice into 1 inch thick slices and enjoy!
