Lemon Cornbread Loaf – soft and fluffy cornbread packed with lemon and baked in a loaf pan. Paired with your favorite fruit preserves it makes for a simple yet delicious treat!
I don’t think I will ever get tired of lemon desserts, breads, muffins or scones. I adore them! The recent lack of sunshine makes me striving for sunny colors and lemon seems to fill the gap. Hence the cornbread loaf.
It sort of just happened one day. I usually bake my cornbread in a skillet or in a muffin pan but that day I reached for the loaf pan and there was no turning back. It doesn’t hurt that I also have a couple of jars of my favorite preserves from this project. I am looking for more ways to enjoy it and this cornbread loaf happened to be perfect for it!
Lemon Cream Cheese Crumb Cake – fluffy lemon cake with a creamy cheesecake layer and a crumb topping.
Weekend baking has the best results. You have time for it, you are in the mood for it and you will not only pay attention to details but indulge in them.
This cake is a result of such weekend. I didn’t even plan on sharing it on the blog. It was just supposed to be a lazy weekend crumb cake. But then I reached for a lemon and a brick of cream cheese and I knew that the cake will be far from plain. It’s a sweet sunshine with citrus notes – just what the weekend needs!
You may already know, that when it comes to crumb cakes or coffee cakes, I have high standards. My Best Apple Crumb Cake is the perfect example. It has the thickest crumb topping layer you have ever seen and drizzled with caramel sauce, makes for a fabulous treat. My Lemon Blueberry Crumb Cake uses a shortcut (a pie filling) and makes for a gorgeous and scrumptious dessert. By the way – coffee cakes do not have actual coffee in them, they are just called that way as they are usually served along a cup of coffee in the afternoon.
My Favorite Carrot Cake – the best and the easiest carrot cake! Moist and delicious!
Easter is quickly approaching and I bet you already have your plans for the holiday weekend set up. Let me add just one more thing to it. I promise, it won’t take much time and the reward is scrumptious!
Enter Super Easy Carrot Cake.
Just to show you how easy this cake is, I will tell you that I prepared this cake while my coffee was brewing one morning. I set up the coffee machine to make a pot of coffee and by the time the cake was in the oven, I was pouring my first cup of joe of the day. How is that for easy and quick?
