Lemon pound cake

I know, I know it looks like another lemon cake and it is another lemon cake. My excuse

is that a massive weather front crossed Arizona yesterday, blew a hoolie which left tons of lemons on the ground so said lemons had to be picked up and a use found for them! cake of course. if i had my trusted thermomix here in arizona I'd be able to make copious quantities of lemon curd and give it away. i have asked before, but if there are thermomix bloggers who know why I cant buy one in the US do leave a comment please. I am also blaming Pinterest ! I came across blogger tablefortwo who has the original recipe here.

I love the Williams Sonoma lemon loaf tin- it's in the Nordic ware range. It a heavy duty quality and will last a lifetime, so worth the extra money in my view. I think they may have discontinued it as I have been trying to buy another to have one at home in guernsey. I only tweaked the recipe (link above) by adding more lemon and no almond. I have to say it is an unusual way to make a sponge. Rather than creaming the butter and sugar the butter is added to dry ingredients so it looks a bit lumpy for a while. No problem for the kitchen aid though and the end result was exceptionally good. By pound cake standards very light.

That's three lemons fewer, hardly a dent made in the fruit fall!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

i'd love to hear from you...
