Recipe: Lemon Loaf

A couple weeks back I had a yard sale, and as always, I cooked a few things just to see if I could sell them.  Some years this goes well and others years just kinda so-so, therefore I always make food that we like in our household.

I made Rhubarb pudding cake (which I love), Rhubarb Cake, and Lemon Loaf.  

I have to admit, I am not very familiar with lemon loaf.. I made it once before YEARS ago for work luncheon I think.   I used this this recipe and modified slightly based on comments.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
