(Member Recipe) Buttermilk Loaf with Lemon Icing
The holidays are coming! I've been working on wonderful new recipes that you can share with your gluten-eating family and friends that will make them swoon. I've decided to kick off my holiday recipes with this Buttermilk Lemon Loaf.
This recipe looks really humble. Butter, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Nothing exciting, right? Well, as you know, sometimes the best baked goods start with basic ingredients. This cake is no exception. I really don't know where to begin when talking about this cake. I'm totally smitten with it.
Let's first talk about the texture. It is dense and damp, like the best version of a pound cake you've ever had. After your tongue rejoices over the texture, the flavor hits you. Buttery and tangy all at the same time. This cake begs you to take another bite and then another and another.
The recipe makes two loaves. So you can pop one into the freezer for those times when holiday guests just happen to show up. . . . (to read the remainder of this article, please log in below.)
