Lemon Tea Cake

 I had a really nice surprise lately.  My daughter sent me a "just because" present.   "Just Because" presents are presents that you give for any random reason.  You may see something that you know someone would really like, you may be missing someone and want to let them know, you may want to show your gratitude for their love, you may just want to give a gift to some you care about and love, or whatever reason strikes you.  I was so pleased to receive this "Just Because" gift, to know that she was thinking of me.    It is a Nordic Ware quick bread pan.  My daughter knows that I love to bake and that my husband, her dad, really enjoys quick breads.  So, it seems this really cute pan jumped right out to her!  Nordic Ware pans are wonderful, sturdy, and arrive with recipe suggestions.  Really yummy suggestions!

This pan arrived with a Lemon Tea Bread recipe which turned out to be moist, and very "lemony."   And as you can see, very pretty.

 Although you can't see it very well in the pictures, the bread has a lemon glaze using Turbinado sugar which sparkles.  This sweet bread would be perfect for any breakfast brunch, coffee club, or even a really nice gift.

"Just Because" gifts are a nice addition to your family traditions.  I am not sure which is better, as the saying goes, giving or receiving!

And Thank you, Abby, for your thoughtful gift.  XOXOXO
