TWD: Lemon Loaf Cake


For TWD this week, the hosts have chosen lemon loaf cake. Before I started baking, I went through the comments from the "P&Q" page and it seems that some of the TWD-ers are not so crazy over this recipe, with the main gripe being, the cake is too dense. To avoid having a huge loaf of cake which I might end up not liking it, I chose to cut the recipe into 1/3 portion and I got a small 2.5" X 6" loaf of lemon cake. I took a bite and the cake is dense indeed, and I think it would taste better with some whipped cream or glazing.

If you want to give the recipe a try, hop over to Truc's or Michelle's blogs!

What a lovely photo! I did not have a problem with it being to dense, but it did lack flavor.

I try really hard to visit a lot of the blogs in TWD but obviously I've been missing yours until now - your pictures are really lovely! Your cake looks great and I agree that a glaze or something would really make this recipe shine.
