Alright, this post is going to be short and sweet – not unlike this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie/Baking with Julia pick, Lemon Loaf Cake contributed by Norman Love. By that I mean that this cake couldn’t be easier to put together, and the result is a nice little lemony pound cake with a dense crumb that takes well to toasting, piling up with strawberries or peaches, or just eating as is.
No need to dirty up your mixer, this cake is made the old fashioned way with a whisk and a sifter. It only uses lemon zest, so if you’re after an extra shot of lemon flavor I would add in a little juice too. And it just begs for a little lemon glaze.
