Lush Lemon Loaf

Lemon is one of those flavours I cant help but love – especially as the sun starts to shine! Citrus bursts work almost as well as a coffee when it comes to waking me up from that mid afternoon slump. And it really doesnt get any better than this lushious lemon loaf cake. Juicy & moist – with a slightly stodgy comforting centre, and a sharp sweet finish. Its a winner as far as Im concerned!
