A slice of moist zesty lemon and orange loaf is a perfect companion for a mid morning cuppa. I loving make simple sweet loaf at the moment, and yes feeding anyone willing! There’s a limit to how much I can subject my poor Hubster to.  

Orange Lemon Loaf

A lemon loaf is a normal coffee shop cake, however adding the orange brings out a flavoursome cake with the extra citrus punch.Adding the orange also makes this cake loaf a little sweeter instead of super tart. IMG_0330

This recipe makes slightly more than a normal size loaf, so I split the batter into 2 slightly smaller loaves of which I took one to work for a raffle and the second one was split between home and neighbours.  Orange Lemon Loaf
