Gluten Free Dandelion Bread Recipe

More delicious organic weed control today!

Saw this recipe from Walnut Acre on a blog hop and knew I had to try it!  When I saw it, I had already been making dandelion jelly for a while (which you saw here), so I thought "what the heck!".  Then of course, there is always the fun of adapting recipes I see to make them gluten free.  So here we go!

SPH Gluten Free Dandelion Bread Recipe
2 cups Pamela's Baking Mix (for "regular" recipe, click the link above)
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 - 2 cups dandelion petals (remove from flower with scissors)
1/2 cup melted butter, cooled
2 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine baking mix, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.  In a separate bowl, beat together melted butter, eggs, and buttermilk.  Add to dry ingredients and mix well.  Stir in dandelion petals.  Pour into well-greased 9x5 baking pan.  Bake for approximately 65-70 minutes, or til skewer inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.  This is delicious toasted, with a little butter and dandelion jelly on it!

OH my gosh! I've never heard of cooking with dandelions before! IS that just regular dandelions that grow in the garden or do you buy them from somewhere special..

Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a fabulous week!

Oh wow! I've never heard of a dandelion bread. I've heard of eating the greens, but not the flowers. What a cool recipe.

Oh, all of these fabulous looking dandelion recipes right now and I've missed the bus. Mine have all gone to seed already. I guess I need to spread the seeds and pin these for next year, right?

I've made violet jelly, but newer dandelion jelly! Luckily I've got 4+ acres of dandelions to choose from! I can't wait to try cooking with dandelions.

I'm intrigued!! If the sun would ever come out allowing the dandelions to grow, I'll give it a try. My kids would think it was awesome!!
