Chocolate Chips stud this classic lemony pound cake.
For this household, an after-school snack begins with a tall glass of milk, crunchy granola bar, some sliced strawberries and a sprinkle of goldfish for good measure. Today, joining the tall glass of milk were two slices of lemon loaf , just like the tempting ones sold at Starbucks and the famous lemon loaf from the eponymous Barefoot Contessa in East Hampton. However this one’s homemade, and that can’t be beat.
The loaves could be assembled by hand without a kitchen mixer. Or use the Cuisinart food processor (that’s sitting on the counter) and pulse a few times to get the right consistency.
With this recipe, I wanted to add some chocolate chips, and just a few were leftover in the bag from something else I recently made. The cake has a tight crumb and a lemony flavor…although it could be just a bit more puckery. So go ahead, add two more tablespoons of lemon juice to the liquid part of the batter. Once done, a lemon glaze would go nicely as well for an after school snack.
