Loafing Around

This week’s TWD recipe is possibly the easiest cake recipe you will ever make.  It takes less than ten minutes from start to finish to get this cake in the oven.  Then, all you have to do is wait for it to bake and cool.  Waiting to eat it is probably the hardest part.  I have made this recipe countless of times over the years and, usually, I double it.  They freeze wonderfully and it is nice to have something on hand when one is pressed for time.

Lemon Loaf Cake

Because this recipe is so easy, it invites all kinds of tinkering.

Orange loaf cake.  It’s easy to substitute one citrus for another.  This one also has a little whole wheat pastry flour in it because I ran out of cake flour and had to make up the difference.

Or leave out the citrus and add a couple teaspoons of vanilla extract for a “plainer” flavor.

Or  add some chocolate because chocolate can’t be bad, right?

Chocolate Speckled with a Hint of Orange.

Do you have 10-15 minutes?  You have time to make this cake.  Don’t have a mixer?  No problem.  All you need is a zester, a whisk, a spatula and a bowl.  Go get the recipe here or here and make one or two or five.  You won’t regret it.
