Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction chose this weeks recipe. Well that you Liliana! This may be my husbands favorite recipe so far since joining Tuesdays with Dorie. As much as we are not custard fans we are the opposite for cakey/bready/lemony desserts.
There is a lemon cake I buy at Publix every once in awhile that Bobby devours. I kind of thought this would turn out like that. It was a little bit denser and more crumbly than that though. I happened to have just the right amount of ground almonds left over from the Linzer Sables. The recipe called for a marmalade glaze. Being short on cash and not thinking "hey I could make marmalade" I opted for White Lemony Glaze instead. Still a recipe from the book, just not was was called for. The only issue I had with this recipe (and it was all user error) was that I overbaked it. I was using a pampered Chef stoneware loaf pan which typically taked longer to bake it. And, my oven cooks slow. I brilliantly thought I should leave it in the full time and I should not have. Oh well I know for next time.
Bobby LOVED it. I loved it, my kiddos loved it. It was easy and a recipe I will be making again in the near future. Thanks Dorie for another delicious recipe!!
