Facebook.com is a great way to stay in touch with friends and family, but it's also serving as a platform for sharing favorite recipes. Some of the dishes are delish, and others don't live up to the endorsements and accompanying photographs.
Bottom line, you won't know how good the recipe is until you taste it!
Here's one scrumptious-looking lemon loaf that's supposed to be a knock-off of Starbucks' version.
"Starbucks" Lemon Loaf
1.5 cups FLOUR 1/2 teaspoon BAKING SODA 1/2 teaspoon BAKING POWDER 1/2 teaspoon SALT 3 EGGS 1 cup SUGAR 2 tablespoons BUTTER; Softened. 1 teaspoon VANILLA 1 teaspoon LEMON EXTRACT 1/3 cup LEMON JUICE 1/2 cup OIL
LEMON ICING 1 cup POWDERED SUGAR; Plus 1 Tablespoon. 2 tablespoons WHOLE MILK (I used 2%) 1/2 teaspoon LEMON EXTRACT
Instructions Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
Use a mixer to blend together the eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, lemon extract and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Pour wet ingredient into the dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Add oil and mix well.
Pour batter into a well greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into center of the cake comes out clean.
Make the lemon icing by combining all the icing ingredients in a small bowl with an electric mixer on low speed. When the loaf is cool, remove it from pan and frost the top with the icing. Let the icing set up before slicing.
