Lemon Lavender Spring Solstice Loaf


I was originally going to make something a little lighter and fluffier but I found this recipe on https://www.happyfoodstube.com, switched out the eggs for an egg replacer, and I was pretty pleased with it. It’s definitely a denser loaf but it’s very lemony and very tasty!

Place two paper kitchen towels onto a plate and transfer the slices onto the plate. The hot sugar is VERY HOT so please handle them with care and let them cool down completely before using them to garnish your loaf.
