How do you make banana bread?

  3. In loaf pan, grease and then dust the sides with flour. Pour In batter until it fills the pan halfway.
  4. Bake!
    Remove and allow to cool briefly.
  5. Serve warm or cooled.

Where do you get lavendar extract?

Lavender extract is made like vanilla extract – vodka and lavender, and steeps for a couple of weeks in it. We do not recommend using lavender essential oil instead of the extract. Some e-oils are okay to use in foods, some are not.

You can buy lavendar extract at Sur La Table, Amazon, World Market, and specialty stores.

You can also leave out the lavendar.
