    This might have been my favorite so far. I love lemony baked goods, which is crazy because I hate lemons.

    I’m sad that I missed this one. Lemon cakes are high on my ‘good eatin!” list.

    The beautiful touch on these is the glaze- just enough tartness with the sweet. I think we should re-name it though….lemon loaf is too mundane for this delicious creation. Any thoughts?
