TWD: Baking with Julia - Lemon Loaf Cake

Man have I been slacking! I have missed my last two baking post that I am supposed to do for my Tuesdays with Dorie. I did bake one of the recipes WEEKS before I was due to blog about it and then was a complete airhead and didn't remember to post the picture and what I thought about the recipe! SO...even though its really late I thought what the heck I will blog about it anyway!

This Lemon Loaf cake is similar to a pound cake and can be completely made without any fancy stand mixers or any other kitchen gadget. Just you a whisk and a bowl! The cake was moist and delicious. Some other bloggers reported that they hardly tasted the lemon but I didn't think that at all. I think if I were to add more zest it would have been a little overpowering but that's just me. :)

A few other people added a nice glaze to the top of their loaves and I wish I would have thought of that because it looked AMAZING! Oh well...maybe next time!

The two hosts of this recipe are Truc of Treats and Michelle of The Beauty of Life. They both have the recipe posted on there blogs for you to check out as well. OR page 252 in the cookbook Baking with Julia! Enjoy!! :)
