Proper Lemon Drizzle Loaf



 
I know, I got rather fanciful with the lavender which is blooming in the garden right now. It smells so nice and lavender and lemon go very well together  . . .  but there is no lavender in this recipe, just lemon.
 
To be honest I am not quite sure how I feel about eating lavender.  I have done . . . and I made lavender sugar every year, but the jury is still out as to whether we love it or not. 

 
As a decoration, absolutely  . . .  in my underwear drawer, pour surement . . . actually flavouring my food, not so in love . . .

 
We were having all of the missionaries over for our annual Summer BBQ that we love do for them, and that they love to come to and I wanted to make a dessert that was not only easy, but that the girls would love . . .  
Girls are always watching their waistlines, young men, not so much  . . .  so I decided to bake a Lemon Drizzle Loaf and serve it with fresh berries and squirty cream.  

 
They were free to put it together as they wanted to  . . . with or without cake or cream.  More berries, less berries  . . .
 
This is a simple loaf with lovely lemon flavours and a deliciously tart lemon glaze. You can use either confectioners sugar in the glaze or granulated sugar.  On a lemon drizzle cake, I like the granulated best . . . but you go with whatever floats YOUR boat!

  
Moist, delicious, lemony  . . . proper lemony  ....
