Luscious Lemon Loaf

Luscious Lemon Loaf

Today I decided that we needed to have a deliciously springy dinner since I will be winging my way to Vancouver for a conference tomorrow. On the menu? “Roast” chicken cooked in my new Instant Pot with asparagus and lemon loaf for dessert. I’m sure you remember that I love anything lemon. Last year, I introduced you to these amazing iced lemon cookies and now I’m here to share a decadently delicious lemon loaf recipe made with farm fresh Burnbrae Farms Naturegg Omega 3 eggs. They even look spring-y themselves. All pretty and yellow!

Springy Eggs

I am considering kicking this up another notch by picking up some fresh strawberries and making my own lemon strawberry shortcake. Just layer a slice of lemon loaf with fresh strawberries (or mix them with a bit of sugar first if you like) and then top with whipped cream. Could anything be more spring-y? I think not!
