I don't make many lemon desserts. It's not that I hate them. If someone gives me something lemon, you can bet I will eat it, it just usually isn't on my radar. This really is one of the reasons I love baking groups though; making things that normally wouldn't be made in my kitchen. Having said that, I don't think this recipe is something that will be made in my kitchen again. There wasn't anything amazing about it. It didn't make me a lemon-lover. It probably wouldn't be making the blog if it weren't part of the baking group.
The loaf was not as moist as I'd like but I was prepared for that since a lot of the others bakers mentioned the need of glaze or moisture. I made a glaze with the lemon juice (the recipe only required zest, no juice), powdered sugar and cream cheese (because cream cheese makes everything better). Even with all the help of the glaze, I still wasn't in love with it. It will probably sit on my counter for a day and then go in the garbage. But it is nice to have things around that aren't tempting. :)
Did you say lemon loaf cake, or lemon volcano cake? Look at this thing.
And maybe it's just me and my lack of enthusiasm for lemon in the first place. If I were going to do it again, I would reduce the baking temp to 325 because I felt like it got a little too brown and barely cooked to the point the toothpick came out clean (but that could also just be my oven's lack of enthusiasm for lemon). If you like lemon and you want to give it a try, you can get the recipe at one or both of these blogs. (or buy the book)
