Luscious Lemon Loaf Cake

Lemon Loaf Cake can be described as light, lovely, luscious, lemony goodness.   Just five minutes to make the simple batter, and after 50-60 minutes of baking you have a delectable cake for dessert or afternoon tea.  Eat it by the slice or use it as the platform for a more dramatic dessert.  Want to kick your shortcake up a notch?   Merely employ the Lemon Loaf Cake as the base and add fruit, whipped cream and a drizzle of something scrumptious!

  1. Holy moly I'm making that when I get home. Strawberry Shortcake is one of my favorite desserts EVER so you've just made my day. What a fabulous idea!

  2. How pretty with the whipped cream & berries all stacked up. The flowers in the background are lovely.

  3. Christy, I would call that a "double", two pieces of that delicious-looking lemon loaf cake in one portion. Now, that's a good idea. Beautiful result. Mary
