TWD/BWJ: Lemon Loaf Cake

My 11 year old granddaughter came to visit during Spring Break and together she and I made this week's recipe from TWD/BWJ: Lemon Loaf Cake.

The weather was cold and rainy and by the time the cake was finished baking and cooling on the counter top, we had hail, thunder and lightening -

Reviews are mixed.  My husband, kids and granddaughters loved it and requested that I make it again.  My husband really liked the light lemony flavor and the pound cake texture.  On the other hand, I prefer a real zesty, lemony cake and I thought this one, although really good as a pound cake, didn't quite deliver as a Lemon Loaf Cake.  Next time I make this, I'll add lemon juice and make a lemon icing to drizzle over the top for that little something extra I crave.

Our hosts this week are Truc of Treats and Michelle of The Beauty of Life.  Check out their sites for the recipe and more results.

I wish the recipe had asked us to use the lemon juice. I have three sad, de-zested lemons sitting in my fridge, with no purpose in mind for them. I just can't throw them out. Sounds like most people in your house liked this cake. Hooray!

This wasn't my favorite, but my husband devoured it! Nice photos!

This cake definitely needed more zing!

I wanted this cake to be more lemony too...
