Lemon Cake Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

This is a cake-bread made with a good amount of lemon juice and lemon zest. Zesting is easy to do if you buy a “zester,” but if you don’t have one you’ll have cut the top skin of the lemon off very thinly and then julienne or slice it very thin. Zesting is all about getting only the top layer of the lemon skin which has the most oils and intense lemon flavor. You’ll then have to juice the lemon. If you have a lemon juicer that’s easy to do but the seeds still have to be removed. You can also squeeze the lemon into your hands and allow your fingers to catch the seeds.
