What happens when you put a kitchen witch and a fae witch in the same room? Why, they make some truly magickal fare of course!
Fae magick and kitchen magick truly complement each other in the most marvelous ways. Aside from their complete compatibility, fae magick and kitchen magick offer a way to connect with your intuition and unlock your magick from within. Let's not forget that the results of our spellwork can be quite delicious!
We decided to get together and throw down some magick in the kitchen by baking loaves of our very own Faery Pleased Lavender Rose Bread, and WOW - it packed a serious punch for both our taste buds AND our witchy practices!
Even if you’re new to your path, or you don’t work with the Fae, this bread recipe is loaded with high vibrational energy which can raise your own frequencies. And what do high vibrations do? Attract more blessings, that’s what! As long as you infuse this bread with your positive intent and powerful innate magick, opportunities to grow and prosper will show themselves.
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 tsp. Dried lavender
- 2 tsp. Dried roses
- 1 tsp. Dried Cornflower
- 1 tsp. Dried Jasmine
- 6 Tbsp. butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
For the Glaze
- 1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp. heavy cream (or milk)
- 1 Tbsp. lavender rosemary infused honey*
For the Lavender Rosemary Infused Honey
You can either buy some from a local bee maker, or make your own by mixing together 8oz of honey, 1 teaspoon of lavender, and 1 teaspoon of rosemary over low heat for 20-25 minutes. Strain and enjoy!
How To Make the Faery Pleased Lavender Rose Bread:
Set the mood. Burn incense of jasmine or vanilla to invite friendly Fae into the kitchen while you’re preparing the dish. You can also light a small white candle or tealight if you don't have incense on hand (or don't want to use it!). We placed our candle near the dish of mixed flowers to infuse them with the Spring Faeries' energy.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan. If it’s sunny and warm where you are, you can soften the butter needed for later in the recipe by placing it outside in the sun for about 20 minutes. This will invite strong fire energy into your recipe.
Combine the milk and dried flowers in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat to a simmer, then remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
If you placed your butter outside for some sunny rays, go ahead and grab it now. In a medium bowl, cream together your butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in the eggs until the mixture is light and fluffy. If you have a specific intent you'd like the loaf to embody, feel free to draw sigils or words of intention onto your eggshells before cracking them. This is how we did ours:
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt then stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the milk mixture until just blended. Make sure to reserve a small amount of the milk to offer to your Fae once you have everything prepared!
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40-50 minutes.
To prepare the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar and heavy cream. Spread it over the bread and sprinkle dried flowers on top. Do this quick before the glaze hardens.
Allow to cool for 20-30 minutes. Offer the first slice to your Fae spirits as an act of gratitude for their past, present, and future blessings. They will definitely appreciate the side of lavender-rose milk if you managed to save some!
