Lavender Blossom Sponge Bread

Sometimes when people asked me what I wanted to bake today!!! I'll have to answer them wait till I got that 'click'! The 'click' that always brings us surprises and curiosity. And I love it that way, so that we can always filled our lives with surprises. Well, today I have both flowers & leaves in my bread....does that sounds wonderfully GREEN to you!?

Here's the recipe.

Ingredients for Sponge Cake :
(A)
4 egg yolk
1/4 cup Lavender sugar/sugar
1/2 cup superfine flour
3 tbsp oil
40ml milk
a dash of dried lavenders

- beat egg yolk and sugar untill foamy & pale.
- alternately stir in flour & milk untill well mixed.
- then stir in oi & lavender untill well combined, set aside.

(B)
4 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tspn cream of tartar

- whisk egg whites, cream of tartar & sugar untill fluffy & foamy.

Method :

- finally, stir ingredients (B) to (A) in three portion untill well combined.
- pour batter to a 10x14" tray lined with parchment paper.
- bake at 185'c for 20 mins.
- then set aside to cool.
- remove the top cake crust carefully & set aside.

Ingredients for Matcha Bread :

360gm bread flour/high protein flour
190gm water
160gm starter dough
5gm salt
2 tspn yeast
1 tspn matcha powder

Method : Please follow instruction from here. I'm using my baguette dough here in this recipe or you can use other bread dough recipe.



TO ASSEMBLE :

- roll bread dough flat about 12x16" or just about the size that is slightly larger than the sponge cake.
- place the cake on the dough and then roll it up like a swiss roll.
- seal both side nicely and place the dough to a bread tray 10x4x4".
- leave to proof for about 45mins or double in size.
- finally, bake at 190'C for about 40-45 mins or untill brown.
- leave completely cool before slicing.

Now, here you have a nice loaf of fragrant soft bread with a kinda sensation & calm flavour. Love me or hate me, daaaaaahling! You still have to make your own loaf of bread....*sigh* Enjoy!

First off Kristy...I have to tell you that before I ever see any of your posts...I already have a smile on my face. That puppy snuck into that bread...ohhh, how I can just scoop him up. Alright, this will be the last time I make that comment.
Now, to your recipe. I want to be honest...not a fan of lavender. However, I absolutely love the turnout of what you did. Maybe, I'll change up some ingredients...hope you don't mind too much ;o)
Always nice to come visit you.
Flavourful wishes, Claudia

That is so intriguing, it looks like a loaf of bread but when I look at the ingredients, seems more like a cake! The lavender sugar does it for me! Absolutely delightful. I think I would eat this with butter and jam for breakfast!

This is a most unusual and delicious bread! I imagine the flavors of matcha and lavender combined must give it a heady fragrance!

Hmmm yummy! You're so creative, Kristy. Haven't see anything like this before. Cake roll inside the bread. I'd definitely love to try it. Not sure about the Lavender smell though. But that's just me.

Ensuing of Combination Microwave Oven into the Market Before selecting one, it is sensible to know about their working, features and efficiency. Before doing the repair of your gas water heater hose, you should check for your municipal rules or local building codes about gas servicing appliances, as many municipalities and cities will only allow a qualified gas service professional in doing repairs to the gas lines.
