There’s an old saying, “When life gives you lemons, make Lemonade.” This week I found myself with a bag of lemons so I decided to make some Lemon Tea bread.
This resulted in a long discussion with my son. He wanted to know if I had put any tea in it. When I said I hadn’t he decided that it was very silly that it is called Tea Bread. I explained to him that it was called Tea Bread because it was bread that you eat at Tea Time, with a cup of tea and some biscuits. He was happy with this explanation but I have no idea if it is correct.
Lemon Tea Bread is an ideal way to use up a glut of lemons, it uses the rind and the juice up nicely. The result is a lovely light lemon flavored cake which is delicious. It was really easy to make but does take a while to cook so make it early. The tantalizing smell will fill the house and you will really want to eat it as soon as possible.
