  1. Hi Betsy,

    My mom gave me a vintage Betty Crocker cookbook for Christmas last year. I love those kinds of cookbooks. :) This loaf cake looks just divine!! Your pictures make me wish for a slice right this minute!! :D Anything with a lemon glaze sounds good to me, and the cake itself looks so moist. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us. I'm so glad you got some rain; I know you all have had the TOUGHEST summer there with the heat and drought.

    Hope you have a wonderful week, my friend!

  2. I'm so glad you got some rain! It's such a good feeling, and California received plenty of it, after months of drought. Your loaf cake looks absolutely amazing. And the glaze with the lemon really makes it better. You know, I love anything Betty Crocker. Oh, this looks so good, and a slice would be perfect with my Starbuck's. ; )

    A lovely September week to you, Betsy.
