Re-post - Dandelion Bread Recipe

It's that time of year again, everyone...

...dandelions are in bloom!

So guess what it's time for ??
Right! Dandelion bread!
Here's a re-post of last year's recipe that I shared for those who missed it...

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.  :)

 Happy baking!


  1. If we ever get spring, I'll have to try this!

    1. Hoping spring will soon arrive in AK, Kendra. You'll love this bread. :)

  2. Wow, I didn't even know one could do that! Learn something new everyday!

    1. You should give it a try, Charlene. I promise your family will love it. I send my children out to gather the blossoms. It cuts the work in half. :)

  3. It sure looks yummy! I would love to try it. We are expecting snow today & tomorrow -- maybe we'll see those pretty yellow flowers in June. haha.

    1. Wow, Jane - snow in May?? You need to move south, my friend. :)

    2. Haha. That's what I keep telling my husband, but he's not buying it. I keep saying it was God's sense of humor that planted me in Minnesota. Thankfully, the snowstorm missed us and what we got melted on contact, but some places south of the Twin Cities got 15". Today we are just getting rain w/ice on the fence posts. Have a good day!!!

    3. Ok, Jane - ice and snow in May confirms it: move farther south...as in - the hayfield in front of my house. Then we could stop this online chatting and have fellowship face to face. lol. ;)
      Hope you have a good day, too. :)

    4. One could only dream. :) (waving)

    5. Maybe our "mansions" will next door to each other in Glory. :)

    6. That would be...heavenly. teehe. Oh yeah, I think I have enough dandelions now. I'll try to make the bread today or tomorrow.

    7. Oh Jane, I'm so glad to hear that you finally have dandelions!! (Does that sound weird?? lol) Enjoy the bread, my friend. :)

  4. I have never had dandelion bread before...but I think I am going to have to give it a try! Very interesting:)

  5. It's delicious, Shannon. You won't be disappointed.
    Happy to have you stop by. I'm heading over to visit you now. :)

  6. Ok, Lisa. You've inspired me with this re-post to come up with a dandelion muffin. My daughter and I were in need of some muffin recipe inspiration! Thank you. :)

    1. Oh, Lisa - what a wonderful idea! I'll be watching your blog to see how the muffins turn out. I'm sure they'll be yummy. :)

  7. W.O.W. I read your title on my sidebar and thought "Huh?"! This is timely since a certain little princess just left me a dandelion on my pillow this morning! I am definately going to try this, but I don't think I'll tell anyone what is in it until they've finished off the bread! It looks delicious and I'm excited to try it! Thanks!

    1. I'm sure your family will love the bread, Jess. :)Thanks so much for dropping by and commenting. :)
      Have a blessed day, friend!
