Lemon Lavender Bread

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender buds
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup vegetable oil

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered confectioners sugar
  • 4 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Lemon Lavender Sugar

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender buds
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


Lemon Lavender Bread

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a pan with non-stick spray and/or parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Stir in the lavender and set aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt/sour cream and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time whisking in completely before adding the next. Add the lemon juice, zest, and vanilla and combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in thirds, whisking lightly just until incorporated. Switch to a spatula and stir in the oil.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes for a regular-sized bread pan or 20 minutes for mini loaf pans. Check with a toothpick, it's ready when the toothpick comes out clean.

Lemon Glaze

  • Add powdered sugar and lemon juice to a bowl and whisk until nice and smooth.
  • Once the bread has cooled completely, gently pour the glaze on top and then sprinkle with lemon lavender sugar right away before the glaze dries.

Lemon Lavender Sugar

  • Place sugar and lavender buds in a small coffee grinder or food processor and pulse until the lavender has been chopped up but not pulverized. Place sugar in a sealable container and add lemon zest. Place lid on the container and shake to get all of the flavor to combine.
