I made this recipe http://www.mennonitegirlscancook.ca/2012/03/lemon-layered-loaf.htm and it was delish!!!
I made a few changes for those of you that have been following awhile already you know I am allergic to dairy and sensitive to eggs. So I used 1/2c apple sauce instead of egg, almond milk instead or cow milk, and earth balance "butter". I also added a little lemon juice to the dough since I really love lemon in the spring!
In the spread on mix I did the zest of 1 lemon (vs. 3) and instead used the juice of the lemon.
For the glaze I of course cannot have cream cheese frosting and so I did a mix of lemon juice and icing sugar and poured that on while till warm out of the oven.
I LOVE how it turned out - I think it tastes every bit as good as it would of with dairy and egg! ... well the cream cheese probably does add extra amazing flavour - but mine is really GREAT! (and the babes loves it as well)
and just so you can salivate through your computer screen - a close up of the lemon-y goodness!
I pinned this recipe and am entering into the pinterest challenge.
