Simple Lemon Loaf

We love the simplicity of this lemon loaf because it allows the fresh sweetness of the White Sonora flour to truly shine. Garnished with bright edible flowers, this loaf is perfect for any special occasion.

lemon loaf with flower garnish

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups Type 00 Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup olive oil

Lemon Glaze
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup powder sugar

Edible flower garnish

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a loaf pan. 

Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl whisk the yogurt, 1 cup sugar, eggs, lemon zest, vanilla and oil together.  Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly, until all the clumps are works out.  Pour the batter into the floured pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

Cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before flipping the loaf out onto a cooling rack. While the cake is still warm, pour the lemon glaze over the cake and sprinkle edible flower garnish over the top. Allow to fully cool before serving.

holiday springerle

Transient

My family has German roots, but this is the first year we've included Springerle cookies as part of our holiday traditions. Last week, I learned how to make these gorgeous anise-flavored cookies with my aunt and cousin. The cookies keep well in airtight containers so it's good one to get done before things get too busy.

I picked out a 17th century Swiss replica of a harvest scene. Look at all the details-- the squirrel in the tree, the spokes of the wagon wheels, the scythes in the hands of the harvesters. 

We got our molds from House on the Hill and used their traditional Springerle recipe with our White Sonora Type 00 flour. It was the softest dough; so easy to work with and to re-roll when we made mistakes. 

I think that these will make great holiday gifts. Or maybe fancy place setting decorations.
