TWD: Lemon Loaf


Now that slower summer days have arrived in my kitchen, I am trying to catch up with my fellow Tuesdays with Dorie bakers.  This recipe is the Lemon Loaf Cake from page 252 of the cookbook we are using for this online baking group, Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan.  I was not happy with the appearance of my loaf.  Many of the other bakers in the challenge did a wonderful job of decorating the loaf with glaze and candied lemons.  I did not bother as the top of my loaf rose too much.  Perhaps my loaf pan was slightly less in volume than what the recipe called for.  The flavor of the loaf was excellent.  It had a wonderful true lemon flavor to it however the cake seemed dry to me.  I do not have a favorite recipe for this loaf cake and I think I will keep looking.

  1. My sister always makes me a lemony lemon cake for my birthday. Check out my website for details. It is moist and super lemony but also sweet – a nice little treat. I know your girls would love it. Take care, BAM
