EDM 84 Lemon Tea Bread

The weekend before last, my granddaughter Emily and I cooked a lemon tea bread together -- it was our first 'cooking' together and much fun!

When karen posted the challenge, I thought I'd commemorate the 'first' by sketching our sweet bread. It contained bits of chrystalized lemon peel that were sweet and tart at the same time, they made your cheeks pucker! The grands LOVED IT!!

A Lovely picture - you've really caught the texture - maybe one day your granddaughter will do a drawing of her memory of making bread with you, as I have done today - should be finished and up tomorrow.

If it was as good to eat as it is to look at, Lin, then wow. You did a wonderful job of translating the texture of the lemon bread onto paper.

What a special occasion and a delicious looking loaf! I love lemon flavored breads and pastries of any sort. Which was more delicious, baking with your grandaughter or eating the results?

Laura said...

What an excellent sketch, Ms Lin! Your warm yellows and ochres give such a great sense of sweetness and citrus and breadness ;D.
