Sweet Seasons Lemon Bread Mix
I claim to like baking, but as much as I enjoy perusing recipes, the long list of ingredients with all of their tiny, precise measurements calls for more energy and patience than I can often muster up. Unfortunately, a lot of the baking mixes out there contain all sorts of suspect ingredients, so I stay away from them as well. I'm always on the hunt for a high quality mix with natural ingredients--that's why Sweet Seasons Lemon Bread Mix caught my eye (well, that and the jaunty yellow packaging). In preparation for a play group I'm hosting this week, I decided to whip this up as I have never, in the year-long history of the group, actually prepared anything "homemade" (hey if it involves melting butter and cracking eggs that's close enough in my book) the way every single other person in the group manages to do each and every time they host. The competition's brutal here in the 'burbs, folks, and I intend to dazzle the other moms with my "top secret" lemon bread recipe ;)
See my tabblo (below) for pictures and my review, and see the extended entry for the ingredient list.
How could you not love this peppy little package? Just looking at it tastes good. ... See my Tabblo>
