Lemon Bread

1 Aug

Oh CSA packages. Here they are, meant to make me a healthier person.

And yet, I take their bounty and douse them in sugar, butter, and other life-shortening ingredients.

The lemons we had from our last package were the only things left from the shipment. I know! It only took us three weeks to work our way to the bottom of the box.

So, of course the occasion calls for lemon bread.

Don’t question it. ANY occasion calls for lemon bread. Obviously.

      Thanks! I picked it up from William-Sonoma about 4-5 years ago. It makes great looking (and tasting) bread, but it’s a pain to clean!

        oooooooh yeah, cleaning those little monsters – yikes! I had a lovely cathedral-looking one that worked beautifully (in theory)…but not in the afterscrub 😉
        You did a lovely job with that cake!
