Lemon Bread

February 26, 2011


*sigh* What is wrong with me?

I was craving lemon cake but had run out of tiny little batches. I thought, “No problem. I’ll do one from scratch.” I found this one online and did the math so I could make a little cake using just one egg.

Stupid me. I did the math but did not remember the math. I only used 1/3 a cup of sugar instead of 2/3. I thought the batter looked a little thick when I put it in the pan, but it also had sour cream in it, and that stuff is so weird I thought that was the problem.

As it was baking, I realized my mistake.

“Great. I just made lemon bread,” I bemoaned.

“Shhhh. I’m watching a movie,” Lloyd commiserated.

No problem. I took it out of the oven a little early, poked holes all over it, and poured lemon glaze (lemon juice and powdered sugar) on the hot cake. Then, to compensate for the lack of sugar in the actual cake – I glazed it again.

I was in a baking mood today.

The second dose was unnecessary. It is puh-lenty sweet now. This cake will give you a cavity just looking at it.

Mmmmmm…… cavity cake…..

    Mmmm… overly sweet baked goods…

    Lemon cake is so good because you can pretend it’s healthy. It’s full of Vitamin C!

    I LOVE lemon cake! Heck, I just plain love dessert. I could live on desserts, dang it.

    And is that a picture of your deeelicious crusty, fast bread? I love that too. Would it be too hard to put up the link on how to make that again? I’m forseeing bread & dessert for dinner tonight!
