Here’s another holiday favorite at my house using Dandelions.
In order to have enough Dandelions for during the year I pick it them in the spring or in the fall after a frost so that it looses any bitternes. I freeze the blossoms. I dry dandelion leaves to use for teas and seasonings.
1-cup white flour
2 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
Dandelion Blossom Syrup (or honey)
¼ cup oil or butter1-cup milk (buttermilk is best!)
1-cup Dandelion blossom petals
Mix the dry ingredients together. Add all the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour the batter into a 9×9 pan, or 10-inch cast iron frying pan. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes.
Serve hot with butter and Dandelion Blossom syrup or your favorite jam or Jelly.
