Update: Got my first assignment results back today and you wouldn't believe it! A+ I can't believe how nervous I was before getting the results, now I have to wait for an even harder essays results. Wish me luck!
For the time though, I'm thankful for lemons that I acquire from all kinds of places, my parents, my preschool centre, my supermarket... Lemons make me happy because lemons (in my house) produce lemon syrup loaf with very little effort on my part. So I'm going to get into my happy place and share this amazing recipe which I would honestly say has to be one of my all time favourites.
Lemon Syrup Loaf
Adapted from Chelsea Sugar Recipe Club
1 3/4 C Flour
1 1/2 t Baking Powder
1 C Caster Sugar
100g Butter, melted
1/4 t Salt
2 T Lemon Rind
1/2 C Milk
¼ C Lemon Juice
1/4 C Caster Sugar
If you’re feeling lazy or just feel like utilising your food processor, you can combine all the ingredients and whizz until combined. I like to use a little extra lemon juice in my syrup to make it nice and tart! This lemon loaf just gets better with age…a couple of days age that is. Though it doesn’t seem to last much longer than that in my house!
So it's a waiting game on my second assignment which I will get results for on my birthday, of all days (next Tuesday!), lucky me. I definitely think I need some (baking) comfort food in the house for these stressy study times! Any suggestions? What is your favourite comfort food?
