Lemon juice:

  • ¼ cup Lemon Juice , freshly squeezed (60ml)
  • 1 tbsp Sugar

Candied lemons: Optional


Lemon lavender loaf:

  • Whisk the eggs and sugar until pale and creamy. Add lemon juice, melted butter and lavender. Mix until combined.
  • Sift in the flour with baking powder and mix with a mixer until well combined. Pour the batter into a 2 pound loaf tin lined with baking paper.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 360°F/180°C for 40-45 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • Right after you take out the bread from the oven, pour over it the sweetened lemon juice. Let the bread cool down before slicing.
  • Optional: Arrange candied lemon slices on the loaf or on each slice.

Candied lemon:

  • In a wide-bottom sauce pan/pot heat the sugar and water until the sugar is melted. Thinly slice lemon and put in inside the pot. Simmer for 20 minutes. Place two paper kitchen towels onto a plate and transfer the slices onto the plate. Let them cool down. If you want to speed up the chilling process, place the plate in your fridge.


  • It is important to pour the sweetened lemon juice over the bread right after you take it out from the oven!
  • Candied lemon slices are completely optional.
  • All-purpose flour (US) = Plain flour (UK).
  • This bread fits perfectly into a 2-pound (900g) loaf tin.
