Playing around the kitchen today as I was wanting to make a bread. I thought how can I use my Lavender Scone Mix into a streusel bread. With a little mixing and a little thinking, and a couple trials...here is what I came up with. It is lovely bread that you'll want to gobble up right from the oven. It tastes delicious with a touch of butter and honey too.
If you don't have time to make the bread, our scone mix is super fast, just 5 minute prep time and 13-15 cook time. But if you have more time to spend in the kitchen this bread is simply delicious!
Lavender Streusel Bread
Lavender Scone Mix
1 cup milk
6 Tbl butter (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 375℉.
In medium sized mixing bowl combine Lavender Scone Mix, 1 cup of milk, eggs, 6 Tbl butter, and vanilla. Stir until ingredients are combined. Set aside and make streusel.
1/4 cup lavender sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbl melted butter
In another small mixing bowl combine sugars and cinnamon. Then pour the melted butter over the top of sugar and mix until combined.
Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Then add half of bread batter spread to edges of pan. Add half of the streusel and top with remaining batter and layer last of the streusel on top. Bake for 40 minutes, then cover with foil and bake another 20-25 minutes until done. Once baked let cool for 10 minutes and then you can remove it from pan and serve.
When working on this recipe I was wanting to make a breakfast cookie or bar. I think you could call it a breakfast cookie as it has blueberries and oatmeal. Although, I think it is more of a cookie once I added the brown sugar. Maybe someone else could redesign it by eliminating the brown sugar to be more of a breakfast cookie...but I like it this way. Next time I am thinking of add a touch of lemon peel to make a lemon lavender blueberry version.
