Sunday is World Baking Day! For this year’s celebration, take on the baking day challenge by baking something you’ve never baked before! The World Baking Day website provides 100 recipes you can choose from at different levels of skill. Whether you “cross your fingers and bake” or you say, “I bake therefore I am,” there’s a recipe there to suit your tastes and baking experience!
To celebrate the occasion, I picked out a recipe called Carmela’s Lemon Loaves! At baking level 67/100, it’s quite easy to make, and very refreshing for the summer too. It has a moist crumb, the texture of a nice quick bread, and it’s full of bright, lemon flavor from its zesty inside to it’s citrus frosting.
Here’s the recipe, re-created in American conventional units, and with a few slight modifications. Hope you enjoy this delightful dish, or another one of those great desserts at the World Baking Day website, for yourself!
