What better way to start off the Saturday of a long weekend (thank you Queen Victoria!) than with a bright, fresh, tart, summer lemon loaf recipe. If you’ve ever taken a bite of the one from Starbucks, you’ve been wanting to make it at home. If you’ve ever taken a bite of this loaf, which I was lucky enough to find over at Kristyn’s Lil Luna blog, then you’ll never think about that Starbucks one again.
If you aren’t already following Kristyn, you should be. Her food always looks incredible, and her home style is exactly like mine. I’m pretty much grabbing every crafty image off her instagram to make for our house. I didn’t change much with her recipe, just a few little tweaks because I wanted to cut down the lemon extract a bit, and use a bit more fresh lemon.
Now, I know, you’ll look at the ingredient list and think “Dear lord that is a lot of ingredients for a simple little loaf”. I know, I get it, I did the same thing. It is worth it though, I promise you. So SO worth it!
Enough jabbering, let’s get to the recipe so we can all start enjoying the day! (I say “enjoy”, but I’ve got a day of necessary lawn maintenance and gardening to do in order to have a presentable looking home again. I’ll be rewarding my grass stained self with some BBQ jerk chicken pizza on the grill tonight, and a beer, I’ll definitely need a beer by then).
