TWD: Lemon Loaf Cake





My husband Kyle was very sweet and made this for me while I was trying to get other things done to study for my final. He said it was pretty easy, but the longest part was getting everything to room temperature. That was especially true for our cream, which was frozen. We used only two lemons because we thought three might be too much, but next time I'd use the full three. Also, we used AP flour, but I think it would be better with the intended cake flour. It was still pretty good. I'd consider it more of a breakfast food than dessert, but that's just because I love sugar too much.

To see the recipe look here or here.

  4. I never thought of it as a breakfast food until I read your blog. I think you are right. And I saw another post where someone put apricot marmalade on it and it was delicious. I really think that is the way to go, because it really does not have enough punch to be a dessert.

  6. What a sweet guy! My husband is a wonderful chef but not a baker at all. I did use cake flour - the loaf was light, but still a bit dry.
