It's not a finished product but this is me making my favourite honey tea bread.

Here is the recipe:
Honey Tea Bread - Honey Association
I love toasting it, melting butter on top, then fresh strawberries on the top, dusted with icing sugar. YUMMMY!!!

Might have to make some now, strawberries are in season here at the moment. Smile

Mmm...that does sound good. The recipe calls for brewed tea, do you use black tea or a different variety?

I'm looking forward to when I'm nursing and can start making lactation cookies again! I don't do as much baking as I used to though I do like making bread in my bread machine and breakfast foods like pancakes and waffles. I love a big plate of waffles with berries, but pumpkin pancakes come in close second :eating:

Ooh, what's a lactation cookie, if you don't mind me asking Smile

The tea bread I've done has been with strong black tea, but it might be a very interesting experiment to use different kinds of tea. I'd never thought of doing that before. Might give it a go!

It's a yummy cookie that in theory helps with milk production because of three key ingredients: flaxseed, oats & brewers yeast. You can find recipes all over the internet. I've used the top link version to make several batches before. I included the bottom link because it explains a little bit more why the ingredients help lactation. Sorry they are not in metric.

Here is a super easy yummy muffin recipe! Also good for adding fiber to your diet because of the pumpkin and contains cinnamon which is a natural remedy to help with lots of different things including regulating blood sugar! It's also fairly low calorie per muffin!!

Ingredients
1 yellow boxed cake mix
1 can pumpkin (not pie filling)
1/2 cup water
3 Tbsp ground Cinnamon
3/4 cup cinnamon baking chips (just like chocolate chips only cinnamon flavor -- they can be hard to find but you can make these without the chips too)

Directions
Mix together the dry cake mix, pumpkin and water (DO NOT FOLLOWING MIX INSTRUCTIONS ON THE BOX). Stir in the cinnamon and baking chips. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. You can either spray a muffin tin or use paper liners (I typically use liners).

I actually have done that. My husband's cousin had a bridal shower and we couldn't make it (we live in Colorado and they were in Florida)... So I made a bunch of mini cakes for the shower and shipped them.

I found flaxseed very effective for increasing supply, but didn't take it in a form anything like as tempting as a cookie! Will have to try those Christina Smile

The cakes are astonishingly good! So clever.
