I think many of us collect lemon loaf recipes..from a girlfriend .. our mom ..an aunt.. a neighbour..a blog..Foodgawker..Tastespotting ..Pinterest..Lee~Ann:)
I picked up a new Nordic Ware pan..(2:))..one for someone and one for moi..and decided to try a new recipe..
Googled..and this one popped up..I had everything I needed except lemon essence but I had my home made ..baked rinds:)
They add a terrific lemon punch..and I must say ...this cake is a little winner and popped out quite perfectly indeed..
I was seeing my hairdresser for my streaks..
I decided to pack up a few slices so she could have some w/ her coffee..
The Graphics Fairy had just posted a post about printing on tissue paper..I dare NOT print on fabric anymore..I think it led to the eventual demise of our previous printer..so this one..knock on wood ..is about 18 months old and still printing..the tissue paper worked fine..do go read the tutorial..the tissue lying down..is from The Graphics Fairy one of her free beautiful French Typography downloads..and the M one is from a blogger I miss..this is from 2009 I think..she also made me a cute one w/ my blog name and I have LOST it in my files somewhere..
Boohoo..anyways hope you try the cake and have fun w/ the GF tut..
Laura Calder makes a fun little lemon cake too..the reason I bring hers up..is that many French recipes call for the little glass yogurt containers..
we made yogurt at home the whole time the girls were growing up..and then we stopped and who knows who I gave our SEB yogurt maker and little glass pots to..?
Anyways the pots were French..but not French cute and to make this recipe w/ kids? How fun w/ the proper pot.
I was going to bring back a pot or two during my next French getaway..hahaha..
imagine ma JOIE..when I found the above little pots in a local store♥
Hope they are here to stay.
I couldn't stop looking at them..I mean..turquoise accents to boot.
