Yesterday I decided to celebrate my Mom's birthday by making her Lemon Bread recipe......I told the story here....
Well, apparently I am not the cook my mother was. I excitedly served Mark an after dinner piece of my mother's famous recipe
An old index card I found in her recipe box, in her own writing revealed the recipe
Mark 'You've got a long way to go to make your mother's lemon bread'
Me 'What's different?'
Mark 'Well, uh, the color, the texture, the lightness the taste, pretty much everything...'
Sigh. So if you are craving lemon bread I suggest you use google to look up a recipe, at least until I perfect this one. I'm thinking that although it said shortening, she may have actually used butter. And since there was a temperature but no time, perhaps I over cooked it. I may try again, or I may leave it as one of those sweet memories of my Mom.
