Lemon Loaf Makeover





This recipe is like the Plain Jane in the talk show audience who desperately needs a make over.  We’ve all seen these shows where the talk show host picks a rather plain woman out of the audience and whisks her back stage for a new hairstyle, makeup, and a snazzy outfit.  Fifty minutes later, the former Plain Jane emerges from backstage, like Cinderella in her ball gown, totally transformed.  Similarly, like the Plain Jane in need of lipstick and accessories, this Lemon Loaf cake needs some help.  Lemon curd, lemon glaze, icing, strawberries, jam, or whipped cream, would certainly improve this plain, rather dry, Lemon Loaf cake.  A good loaf cake, like a natural beauty, should be able to go au natural; this cake, in my opinion, cannot.

  1. I agree. I liked it on it's own but I kept thinking of what I could pair it with.
