Good Morning Everyone,
I looked outside today and expected it to be sunny, but, alas, it was dreary. Which put me in the mood to bake. But then, again, I'm always in the mood to bake. I just needed an excuse. And since I have an abundance of overripe bananas in the freezer, voila! Banana Bread. Now, this is my go-to recipe for Banana Bread, but I will be making it extra special by adding 1 Tablespoon of my culinary lavender buds.
The key to baking with lavender is not to overdo it. It can be an overpowering flavor so it's best to go easy. Here at Turkey Creek Lavender we grow Provence as our culinary lavender. Even though the milder English lavenders are favored by some for baking, they do not grow well in my area., so, again, I am very judicious about how much I add to any recipe.
