I adore having the opportunity to share my love of food photography (and food in general, I really love food lol!). This month I’ve chosen to share some images of my favourite lemon loaf. Please make sure to follow the link at the end of this post to the next fabulous photographer in our circle, it will be worth it <3
For Easter, I took the kids to Grampa & Omi’s house for brunch, and then we picked up the hubby and we all went to dinner at Gramma and Papa’s house for dinner. I made a lemon loaf to bring to each place (and it gave me an opportunity to play with a couple new drops). I also made a third that I kept at home, as I was afraid to serve it to anyone lol. I was just scooping the batter into the loaf pan when I realized that I hadn’t put sugar in the recipe. Of all the recipes to forget sugar, it would have to be the one with lemon, lemon zest and lemon extract 😀 I poured the batter back into the bowl, added the sugar, mixed a bit and poured it back into the pan. I popped it in the oven and crossed my fingers, but wasn’t brave (or cruel lol) enough to serve it to guests! (It turned out fine, by the way!)
If you look on Pinterest, there are dozens of Copycat Starbuck’s Lemon Loaf recipes. I use this one, and I like it. If I am making it for myself, I increase the amount of lemon juice as I like it a bit tart. The recipe, as written, is fairly sweet so I think you could safely cut back on the sugar a little as well.
