Hello There! How are you doing today?
It's the first day of Spring and
there are signs of it everywhere.
The daffodils are in bloom....
I love the vibrant yellow these
delicate flowers hold!
It's a new season... A fresh new start!
For a while now it's been a bit hard.
Everything we've tried to do
just seemed a bit, well hurky jerky.
I mean everything....
From purchasing new furniture to getting new safes
(which we still don't know where the safes are)
to my hubby's vehicle not running...
I mean, the list just continues on.
So, starting today...in this new Spring season...
I am starting fresh...
The slate has been wiped clean.
I'm walking hand in hand with God
and I'm ready!!
I will Trust in the Lord with all MY heart!!
How has the passed few weeks
been treating you all?
I've read on several blogs that most of you
are still inundated with snow.
It's been crazy warm here. Like high 80's warm!
That's too warm to start out the Spring.
It's very dry here in my neck of the woods too.
We need rain or snow....Badly!!
We have been praying constantly for moisture.
Would you all say a prayer
for this dry and thirsty land?
Okay, I've rambled on long enough...
Would you like to try a yummy lemon bread recipe?
My son absolutely LOVES lemon!!
One thing that I love about this bread, is it's moist.
And very lemony...
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp grated lemon peel
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, lemon juice and peel.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, gradually
stir into the creamed mixture alternately with milk,
beating well after each addition.
Pour into a greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until
toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Combine glaze ingredients.
Remove bread from pan and drizzle with glaze.
Serve warm with a cuppa tea or coffee.
** This can be made with Gluten Free flour
and it still turns out moist**
Thanks so much for stopping by...
Hugs & Blessings,
