Perhaps it was the gluten free flour I used but I this loaf was dry and not lemony at all! It tasted like cornbread with just a hint of lemon flavor to it. I was extremely disappointed in this one!
The Avid Baker Challenge bakers are cooking from Scientifically Sweet, and quite frankly, I have not yet been impressed with the recipes. But again, I did use gluten free flour instead of just all purpose flour so that might be the reason for the dryness, but I used just as much lemon as the recipe called for and I didn't get a huge lemon flavor at all. The the other bakers seem to have been pleased with the flavor and this recipe.
All I can say is.....Meh!
Oh well, hopefully the brownies will be better!
Next up is Fudgy No Butter Brownies.
Until next time

That would be okay with me :)ReplyDelete
NIce texture! Good to know this recipe worked with GF flour. Maybe up the lemon zest next. I know I used more than the recipe called for (I didn't measure but it felt like more).ReplyDelete
