TWD Baking with Julia: Lemon Loaf Cake
. Wow, it's only been about a month but I feel like I haven't visited Baking with Julia in a VERY long time. Sad day.
But not to worry, TWD is back in action! And today we have a very easy, yet spectacular, treat for you: Lemon Loaf Cake. Remember my Cake Show Pound Cake I made for SRC? Well this loaf cake is extremely reminiscent of it, except with a refreshing touch of citrusy lemon. And because the almond whipped cream was such a hit with that Cake Show Pound Cake, I felt a need to make a simple, simple accompaniment: lemon drizzle. Supa easy [squeeze out the juice of one lemon and add powdered sugar until desired consistency] and the drizzle added just the right amount of extra lemon flavor.
Whoa, this might be my shortest post to date. But I guess that speaks for the simplicity of the recipe, right? I must say though, this isn't exactly my most favorite recipe from TWD. Yes, the loaf still screams 'quality', but I guess I'm just not the biggest lemony bread fan? Yeah, that must be it. Or I think what would really bring me in would be a nice thick layer of lemon frosting. Maybe next time! But for those of you looking for a heavenly lemon-scented bread, you will find this recipe all too pleasing.
I know my direct and to-the-point description of this citrus loaf has you itching for more. And possibly drooling. So head on over to our blog hosts for this month, Treats or The Beauty of Life, for the Lemon Loaf Cake Recipe! OR, check out the Leave Your Link (LYL) Post to check out all of the other TWD members!
Until next month, TWD! .
