Lemon Loaf Cake - Tuesdays with Dorie

Life is very hectic this week, but I had to take a break from violin practicing to make this recipe this afternoon.  The batter was pretty easy & quick to put together.  The hardest part was zesting the lemons, so this is a recipe that anyone can bake.

I sliced into my loaf while it was still a bit warm and the crust was a tad crusty - perfect! In insides were soft and dense like pound cake - perfect, perfect!  Mine turned out just a little bit drier than I'd like, but I was a bit sloppy in measuring my flour and being in AZ, I could reduce my flour a tiny bit next time.  I have lots of strawberries in my fridge, so I think I'll serve my lemon loaf cake with some berries and whipped cream for an after-dinner dessert and I think the berries and cream will add a little moisture to help make the cake seem a little less dry.

Can't wait to see everyone results.  To get the recipe, go HERE or HERE.

Happy Tuesday!!

Yum. You are hired to be our chef! I look at your blog and think, "why don't I try more recipes??"

If you really want to see a picture of Ashlins little boyfriend. There was a picture of him in my post of Vanessa's baptism: http://vernonfun.blogspot.com/2012/03/vanessas-big-day.html
Click on it and scroll down like 3 pictures and it is the guy Ashlin is standing next to doing thumbs up. Its the only picture I've ever taken of them. They weren't a "couple" when I took that picture though. He really isn't "little" like I keep saying, I think he's like 6'4. ha ha.

Very pretty - I am sure it will be great with the berries and cream.

I think the idea of strawberries with this would be just wonderful. Looks delicious!
