Lavender Tea Bread with Lemon Glaze

My favorite way to celebrate Mother's Day is to go to a fancy brunch. I love having beautiful mimosas, decadent dishes to try and luscious breads:  scones, biscuits, tea breads all beautifully matched with special butters to go on them!  We are helping you create that pampered feeling of a fancy brunch without having to spend the big bucks!



Today I have created for you a delicious tea style bread with the ease of a cake mix.  The bread comes out lovely, with a nice crumb and a delicate lavender taste.  The lemon glaze is properly tangy with the sweet bread.  I made this, including baking, in under an hour.  It can be made the day before as well.

I completely cool this bread before pouring on the glaze, but my mom likes to let the bread be a bit warm.  When the whole thing cools down, you will get a nice crunchy glaze.  I love serving this with a cup of tea, especially The Republic of Tea's Blueberry Lavender Tea.  It is the prettiest purple color!
