Lemon Crumb Loaf

So excited about this post!  We have so many blogger friends out there in blogger-world (yes, that’s a technical term, hee hee), and once in awhile we gather together and do something fun like this FREAKY FRIDAY recipe swap! Within this group, we were all assigned a blogger and from their site, we were to choose a recipe and remake it for our website.

I was assigned to Stephie CooksI knew instantly that choosing a recipe from her site might prove challenging just because everything looks fabulous and sounds so good!  If you aren’t familiar with Stephie, she’s a spunky gal who loves shoes, cooking, and life, you’re gonna love her!

I’ll be honest I was torn between a couple of recipes from her site, and once you start browsing you’ll completely understand.  I was really tempted to make her Spiked Mexican Hot Chocolate, I mean it is winter and I am freezing and well, Tequila…hello, that’s magical stuff. But then I stumbled on her Peanut Butter Cake which had me hook, line & sinker.

In the end, though, I chose to make Stephie’s Lemon Crumb Loaf, I chose this for a couple of reasons. I love the fresh zing of lemon in desserts, it makes me think of sunny days and warm weather which I desperately could use a dose of and because of the crumb topping, who can resist a crumb topping, not this lady! And Ta-da…I present to you Lemon Crumb Loaf!

This turned out so yummy, my oldest daughter proclaimed that she would eat the entire loaf.  And I will, in turn, say that I partook of this for after dinner snack and with coffee mid-morning, so it works any time of the day!

It isn’t overly sweet, has a nice zing from the lemon and is easy to prepare, you’re gonna love it just as much as we did!  I thank Stephie for sharing such a wonderful recipe and do encourage you to stop over and try some of her lovely creations!
