Lavender Banana Bread

I had a fair amount of lavender left over from some I had grabbed for a friend from our CSA. He never wound up needing it, so I decided to put it to use with this banana bread recipe.
I was worried about it tasting like perfume, but it was a unique alternative to your regular old banana bread.

yield: 1 loaf of banana bread

3 ripe bananas, mashed
⅓C butter, melted
1C sugar
1 egg, whisked
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
⅛ tsp salt
1½C all-purpose flour
2 tbs fresh lavender buds

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mash together butter and bananas with a wooden spoon.
  3. Mix in sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  4. Sprinkle in salt and baking soda.
  5. Mix in flour until well combined.
  6. Add in the lavender buds.
  7. Pour batter into a greased 4"x8" loaf pan.
  8. Bake for 1 hour, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Let cool.
  10. Enjoy!
