Thanks to Norman Love, who contributed this recipe, this week’s BwJ is a lovely lemon loaf. With lots of Lemon zest (3 large lemon’s worth) there is lots of lemony flavor.

The cake only takes about 5 minutes to put together so it is easier than some. And it doesn’t require a mixer, just a spatula, a whisk, and a strong arm.

While good right after cooling it is equally good toasted. Buttered. Or served with a dollop of lemony whipped cream.

One hint, let the toasted loaf cool a smidgeon before dolloping it with whipped cream lest the whip cream MELTS!! Sprinkle with a little lemon zest. Perfect dessert. Or maybe breakfast!

This is a great little cake. Definitely worth making again. And again… And again….. And…

You can find the recipe on our hosts’ blogs: Treats by Truc or The Beauty of Life by Michelle. Or you could just break down and get your own copy of Julia’s Baking with Julia and find the recipe on page 252.
