Guess that this must be the place...

TWD: Lemon Loaf Cake

I have made, over the years, rather a lot of lemon cakes. There's the lemon cake to impress and the demure little lemon cake and the lemon cake I make all the time.

Thanks to Dorie and our hosts this week at Treats and The Beauty of Life, now there's another one. Whatever shall I do? This one may become my "all the time" cake. It's a very simple recipe, requires one bowl and no mixer, is firm in texture and modest on the tongue, and goes excellently with an afternoon cup of tea. An excellent sort of thing to have in the freezer for Cake Occasions.

I have not been getting the camera out much lately, but here are before and after shots.

She left off watching Kipper as soon as the camera flashed, at which point I became very grateful for how quickly-put-together this recipe is.

I brought it to the office for an afternoon meeting, and it was well-received. I may have had three slices. Maybe.

I have been horrible at visiting everyone else's blogs. I will try harder this week, promise!

glad you enjoyed the recipe! I could have done with a touch more lemon in it... but I do like my lemon desserts tart. :)

Sounds like this was a hit for you.
It's nice to have such a quick dessert in the pocket.

You have to love a quick recipe!

Thank you, Dawn! We like her. :)

Smarkies, I agree that it could have been a bit tarter--I should have iced it, maybe.

Thanks for stopping by!
