Summer time is all about getting back in touch with your youthful spirit, finding time to play in the sun & relax, while enjoying the abundance of all that nature has to offer, what better way to cast a loving spell of abundance, joy & vibrancy upon you & your family with some fun Kitchen Witchery?
A Lemon Lavender Loaf, is the perfect sweet treat to share around the bonfire or with early morning coffee under the summer sun. To get started you can go to a local farm an try your hand at harvesting your own Lemons or Lavender to incorporate into your cooking. If you have a preferred sweet bread recipe, you can
use that & just be intentional about adding you Cinnamon ( abundance,) Lemon (Joy & Youth, Sun Energy) & Lavender ( Love & Peace.)
This is a fun way to incorporate your family, friends or little one's into your magick castings & share your blessed crafts with loved ones over the Summer.
Feel free to substitute with Vegan recipe options etc.
You Will Need:
Makes 1 small loaf
Bake 320 degrees / 40-50 min.
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup soft Butter
2 tsp Oil
2 Lg. Eggs
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 whole squeezed Lemon
Grated Lemon Zest
A Tsp of Cinnamon Powder
A pinch of edible Lavender Bud
( Adding too much Lavender will make your bread taste like soap. Go sparingly.)
( a finishing glaze is optional & I did not add it)
While mixing your ingredients together, after you are completed with the base mixture, be mindful & intentional on the Cinnamon, Lemon & Lavender. Visualize a blessed Summer. Say a prayer, mantra or blessing while you stir.
Whisk all your dry goods together. Add the wet ingredients. Butter your Bread pan(s). Pour in mixture, Pop in Oven, Bake, top with a sprinkle of Lavender Buds & Enjoy!
Blessings of Youthful Summer Abundance,
My Baby Boy, who helped to whip it all together
& patiently waiting to eat all the bread:
