Apparently I have a compulsion with lemon loaf cakes. I see one and then I absolutely must bake one. Courtney shared this recipe recently and after that, I had a one track mind. I kept thinking about this cake, kept wanting to make it, until I couldn’t wait any longer, so I did. Then I discovered two problems. First, this cake is far too easy to make. I mean, I could literally go into the kitchen right now and whip one up in a matter of minutes. Why am I not doing this?
And the second problem? Its magnetic pull. So incredibly hard to resist. The lemon soaking syrup and lemon glaze take the flavor up a notch. It’s equal parts sweet and sour, and lemony but not in a mouth-puckering way. I was good most days and waited until after dinner to enjoy my slice for the day. One Sunday morning I may have enjoyed it as a breakfast treat…maybe. Here’s to a bit of laid back weekend baking. Enjoy!
