Dandelion Sweet Bread

You probably have this special weed growing in your front or backyard right now, the dandelion flowering weed. You may be most familiar with dandelion as a stubborn weed that never seems to leave your lawn or garden,however, in traditional herbal medicine practices, dandelion are revered for their wide array of medicinal properties and for special sweet treats. From root to flower, dandelion are highly nutritious plants, loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber. Dandelion greens can be eaten cooked or raw and serve as an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. They also contain vitamin E, folate and small amounts of other B vitamins.

During this quartine time for all of us I have started looking into new receipes for my family and I. I wanted to share the newest one that I found and baked!

Dandelion Sweet Bread

This Dandelion Bread recipe makes 2 loaves:

You will need 4 cups flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 – 2 cups dandelion petals 1/2 cup vegetable oil 3/4 cup honey 2 eggs 2 2/3 cups milk.

First, gather your dandelions.  You want to gather from an area that has not been sprayed with herbicide, like your own yard.  You only need the yellow flower, so this is an easy job for the children!  You’ll want a bunch.

Wash your flowers and separate the petals from the green

Once you have between 1 1/2 to 2 cups of petals, gather your other ingredients and get baking! Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine dry ingredients, including dandelion petals, in large bowl.

In separate bowl mix milk, beaten eggs, honey and vegetable oil. Add to dry ingredients and mix well.

Pour batter into two greased bread pans. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes.  Lower temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking another 20 minutes.

After you take it out of the oven drizzle honey on top of the loaf, let cool and serve! This delicious bread is very sweet!
