LEMON!!  Tart! and sweet if made into a lovely loaf.  Like this one from Colorado Farmers’ Market Cookbook – my book of choice for October’s Cook Book Countdown.  This Very Lemon Loaf is just that VERY lemon!  3 Tbl of lemon zest mixed with 1 1/2 tsp lemon oil and soaked in a lemon glaze.  JUST RIGHT!  I usually cannot get enough lemon flavor into a cake, but this recipe from Maggie McCullough’s Bakery and Cafe was perfect!


I made a simple lemon glaze for the top because you can NEVER have too much lemon.  I love that you can see the little pieces of lemon zest in the cake.  Moist.  Lemony.


The recipe is on page 167.
