Mini Lavender Lemon Loaves

Indulge in the exquisite blend of flavors with my Mini Lemon Lavender Loaves. This moist and tender treat is infused with delicate lavender extract, harmonizing perfectly with zesty lemon notes. A luscious lemon glaze coats the loaf, creating a tantalizingly sweet-tart crust. To elevate this delightful creation, a velvety lavender icing graces the top, adding a subtle floral essence. Each slice offers a delightful contrast between the citrusy tang and the gentle floral undertones. Perfect for afternoon tea or as an elegant dessert, these Lemon Lavender Loaves promises to be a memorable and irresistible treat for any occasion.



Set the Scene: In conjunction with the delightful Lavender Lemon Loaves, I recommend integrating a self-care strategy such as practicing relaxation techniques. Before you begin baking, find a calm and peaceful space where you can fully immerse yourself in the process. Take a few moments to engage in deep breathing exercises or meditation to help center your mind and release any tension or stress. As you prepare the ingredients and mix the batter, focus on the soothing aroma of lavender and the fresh scent of lemon, allowing them to calm your senses. While the loaf is baking, take a break and engage in a relaxing activity such as reading a book, listening to calming music, or taking a leisurely stroll in nature. Once the Lavender Lemon Loaves are ready, savor each slice mindfully, allowing yourself to fully enjoy the delicate flavors and the nourishment it provides.


Vibe: Pair the Lemon Lavender Loaves with the soothing and soulful sounds of Jhené Aiko's song "Eternal Sunshine." As you savor each bite of this exquisite treat, let the music transport you to a place of tranquility and pure bliss. Just like the song's ethereal melodies, the Lemon Lavender Loaves promises to take your taste buds on a journey of delightful flavors, leaving you feeling uplifted and at peace. Enjoy this perfect combination of delectable tastes and soulful tunes for a truly enchanting experience. 🍋🌸🎶 #LemonLavenderLoaf #EternalSunshine #JhenéAiko #SoulfulTreats #BlissfulBites


Booze: Enjoy the combination of Lemon Lavender Loaves and Moscato d'Asti for a delightful indulgence. The light, sweet, and slightly sparkling characteristics of Moscato d'Asti complement the citrusy and floral notes of the loaf beautifully. The wine's fruity and aromatic profile, with hints of peach, apricot, and orange blossom, would harmonize with the lemon and lavender flavors, enhancing the overall dining experience. The refreshing and effervescent qualities of Moscato d'Asti make it an excellent choice to balance the sweetness of the glaze and icing, making it a truly delightful pairing for this delectable dessert.🍋🌸🍷


Ingredients

For the Lemon Lavender Loaves:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoons lavender extract

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • 1/2 cup milk

For the Lemon Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

For the Lavender Icing:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon lavender extract


Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 16-mini loaf pans for easy removal.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the granulated sugar and softened butter until light and fluffy.

  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Then add the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, and lavender extract. Mix until smooth.

  5. Gradually add the dry flour mixture into the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans and smooth the top with a spatula.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Keep an eye on it, as oven temperatures can vary.

  8. While the loaves are baking, prepare the lemon glaze by heating the lemon juice and granulated sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, and then set it aside.

  9. Once the loaves are done baking, remove them from the oven and place the pans on a wire rack. Poke several holes on top of the loaf using a toothpick or skewer.

  10. Pour the prepared lemon glaze over the warm loaves, allowing it to soak in and create a tangy, sweet crust.

  11. Let the loaves cool completely in the pan before removing them.

  12. To make the lavender icing, mix the powdered sugar, milk, and lavender extract until smooth.

  13. Drizzle the lavender icing over the cooled lemon loaves, allowing it to drip down the sides.

  14. Allow the icing to set for a few minutes before serving.
