1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter melted and browned
1 quart of heavy cream
2 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon coarse salt
Follow these instructions for making butter. Once done, mix in honey and salt and set aside in a bowl in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Heat oven to 350° F. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, lemon juice, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt. Add sugar and stir to mix. Make a well in the center, and pour in egg mixture. Gradually mix with dry ingredients until just combined. Add melted and browned butter, and stir until smooth. Try not to over-mix.
Line an 8 1/2- by 4-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Pour batter into pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 60-75 minutes. Cool in pan 5 minutes, remove bread from pan, and finish cooling on a rack.
