Dandelion Bread

Last spring for the first time I made Dandelion Jelly. It was a big hit with my family.

 And yesterday I tried a new dandelion recipe: Dandelion Bread.  Another big hit.

Here's the recipe: 
4 c. flour
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1  1/2 - 2 c. dandelion petals**
1/2 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. honey
2 eggs
2  2/3 c. milk

Preheat oven to 400.
Combine dry ingredients, including petals.
In separate bowl, mix oil, honey, eggs, and milk.
Stir in dry ingredients and mix well.
Pour batter into 2 greased loaf pans. 
Bake for 20-25 minutes.If not done, lower temperature to 350 and
continue baking, checking every 5 minutes.
Cool on wire rack.

**Remember to wash the blossoms before trimming the petals and make sure you gather blossoms that have not been treated with weed killer.

Here are some photos of how mine turned out...
                                                     ...the petals.

                                  You can see yellow flecks in the batter.

                                                 Just out of the oven.

                           The inside is a pretty golden color.  :)

Have a blessed day, friends!
