Lemon Loaf

Last Sunday was Easter. Last Saturday our local bar was giving away opening day Phillies tickets.....

I hosted a nice little Easter brunch for our two close friends, Melissa and Jack. I prepared as much as I could on Saturday so it would be easy breezy on Sunday morning. The lemon loaf from this week's Tuesday with Dorie made it to my Easter menu. I thought it was a perfect complement to the overall meal. It was really easy to put together. The hardest part was probably zesting the lemons and of course waiting for the loaf to bake. Waiting wasn't hard for me...but it was hard for somebody else (somebody who thought they were going to win Phillies tickets)! That certain someone (cough, cough, Nadya) pulled the loaf out of the oven about 8 minutes too soon. Unfortunately, I didn't notice until Easter morning when the center of the loaf looked rather moist. I tried to save it by heating it back up but that didn't help. I'll have to make the lemon loaf again. The pictures from all the other bloggers look amazing! If I had more lemons on my hand Easter morning I would have started all over. I'll be sure to blog about my lemon loaf success. Until then, check out my fellow Tuesday with Dorie Bloggers and their lemon loaves.

For those of you wondering, we did NOT win the opening day Phillies tickets but we did have a fun time. 

Thanks so much to Truc of Treats and Michelle of The Beauty of Life for hosting this week! I'll be sure to make again soon! You can find the recipe here


  1. Sorry you didn't win tickets.
    This loaf is a winner, we loved it.

  2. I have to admit, I like loaves that come out early. I call it a success ;)

  3. Sorry for the tickets.
    Mine did come out "on time" but I found its texture too dense. Not a winner for me.

  4. Boo, sorry you didn't get the tickets :-(

    Hopefully, the re-do on the loaf will work out for you.

  5. Bummer about the tickets and the undercooked loaf! Hope you like it the second time around!
