I’m always on the lookout for recipes that are perfect for summer. There are just so many ways that you can dress up Jell-O or so many times that you want to haul out the ice cream maker, which is why I’m so glad I came across this luscious lemon raspberry loaf.
It’s perfect for summer cookouts and picnics or just for having around the house when you want something a little sweet. What I really love about it is how quick and easy it is to make and it’s virtually foolproof.
You really can’t mess this one up – plus it’s the perfect flavor and not too sweet. Enjoy it in the morning with your coffee or after dinner as dessert bread – it’s very flexible!
I really do love finding new recipes. I mean, these crispy potato pancakes were a great find and I have made them so many times over the past few weeks. Anytime that I can find a delicious recipe that my family loves I consider a win.
This lemon raspberry loaf is definitely a win in my book. I’m not typically fond of raspberry but in this dish, it’s not too strong so it’s great. The lemon really gives it a wonderful flavor, too and again, it is absolutely perfect for summer desserts.
You can get this one ready for the oven in about 10 minutes and then relax while it bakes. Imagine having delicious and moist dessert bread in just 10 minutes of prep time. This would be the perfect loaf to take along to cookouts and reunions over the summer.
And since raspberries are soon to be in season, it’s an inexpensive dish to make as well. Plus, your kids are going to love it, probably as much as they’ll love these ham and cheese Hot Pockets mimics.
If you’re tired of traditional lemon bars and other summer desserts and you want something a bit unique, this is definitely the recipe that you need to try. It’s got so much yummy flavor and it’s a really easy loaf to make. Grab those lemons and raspberries and bake this up for your next office party. Your coworkers will definitely thank you for it!
