Apparently, Canada has more going for it than hockey and beer…and in my book that is saying something! (Go Pens!)
Showed this recipe to a friend from Nova Scotia, and sure enough, she said it was exactly her Grandmother’s recipe…http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1813,146174-236205,00.html
I must have made four of these in as many weeks. The hubster and the youngling hoover them down quicker than just about any dessert I’ve made. We are all big fans of lemon…and this is so easy, simple…downright wholesome. Yeah, it isn’t a paragon of healthy eating, but being made of all natural ingredients like plain ordinary cane sugar, butter, eggs, flour and lemon…it seems like a health food compared to soda, chips, candy bars or commercial cakes and snacks.
I have to admit to hitting the lemon bread more than I should…although I will put some lowfat, natural vanilla yogurt over mine to bump up the protein and ratchet back on glycemic impact a minuscule, tiny, itsy, who-am-I-kidding-this-is-just-plain-good amount.
Maybe I am just kidding myself, but I feel better after that treat (sweetened only with sugar, yogurt included) than after any soda or commercial treat. Anecdotal evidence is still evidence, especially when it is your own personal anecdote. The regular corn syrup that you use to make desserts at home is not good…but science be damned, commercial HFCS is somehow evil.
But that’s just me. And this is just me heading toward the coffee pot while looking at the lemon bread like Edward-up-a-tree looking at Bella….
Whether the bread survives or not…thanks Canada. YUM!!!
