My husband does not enjoy desserts that do not involve chocolate. He considers them a waste of time. I, on the other hand, love fruit flavored desserts. This is why I took advantage of his absence at a conference to spend the week making fruity deliciousness. This is not the only fruity dessert you’ll be seeing in the near future!
Anyway, lemon is one of my favorite flavors. It’s light, it passes for both spring and summer, and I love the bright yellow color of a lemon dessert. You just can’t beat that. It’s like sunshine in bread form!
As for the orange, I was originally going to go for a plain old lemon glaze (which you can do, just sub lemon juice for the orange juice), but I had an orange dying a slow death on my counter. I sort of figured orange would compliment the lemon, and boy was I right! It’s just the right combo of tart, sweet, and mellow. I seriously cannot get enough of this bread. I actually ate the entire first batch by myself in one day (aaahhhh!) before I even photographed it. You’re seeing my mini-loaf attempt from two days later. That’s how good this bread is. You can’t leave me and it alone in the same house…
