directions

  • Combine 1 teaspoon water and egg a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Reserve 1 tablespoon egg mixture.
  • Dissolve honey and yeast in warm water in a large bowl, let stand 5 minutes.
  • Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add 2 cups remaining egg mixture, lavender, butter and salt to yeast mixture, stir well. Stir in 3 cups flour to form a stiff dough.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly flour surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes), add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands (dough will feel tacky).
  • Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in size. (Press two fingers into the dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.)
  • Punch dough down; cover and let rest 5 minutes.
  • Divide in half. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), roll each portion into a 12-inch rope on a floured surface. Twist ropes together, pinching ends to seal. Place the dough in an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
