Lemon Loaf {Baking with Julia}

Another recipe down in the Baking with Julia cookbook challenge every other Tuesday.  This little lemon quick bread was supremely easy and would be a good treat alongside a hot cup of tea with a  friend.  My boys did not care for it that much - I think the lemony icing I added on top was a bit too lemony for their taste - but that was my favorite part.  

This is the line-up of ingredients.  Simple.

Ready for the oven.


The crumb and density reminded me of a poundcake - not too moist - a sturdy cake.


The edges were a bit overly browned but I enjoy the crunch of a crust on a quick bread.

 


Lemon Loaf - a refined taste and texture - and so easy a child could make it.  Stop over at the hostess' blogs to read and print the entire recipe: 


Next up - Hungarian Shortbread on May 8th.  See you then!
