Almond Rose Bread. Delicate in taste and texture. Subtle rose essence blends perfect with almonds. I used almond flour and almond extract to get the right flavor.

Welcome to another addition of Bread Bakers!

April showers bring May flowers and Mother’s Day.

This month’s challenge: Bake any bread that reminds you of flowers or Mothers Day.
 
I’m so happy to see the flowers return. Spring flowers give off the best fragrances. Lilacs, daffodils, Lily-of-the-Valley fill the air with sweet, sweet smells.
Lilacs were a favorite shared by me and my Mom. I’ve had a lilac bush just about everywhere I lived. A fresh cut bouquet of branches full of ripe, purple flowers grace me home every spring. I also take a bouquet to my Mom’s grave site. Next to lilacs, roses were her favorite.
So in honor of my Mom and Mother’s Day, I made Almond Rose Bread.
Delicate in taste and texture. Subtle rose essence blends perfect with almonds. I used almond flour and almond extract to get the right flavor.
