This little loaf is one of those baked goods that walks a fine line between ‘bread’ and ‘cake.’ It’s equally at home at breakfast and dessert, so we guess it doesn’t really matter what you call it, it just matters that it’s sweet and delicious and flavored with one of the best combinations there is – lemon and raspberry.
We adore the combination of lemon and raspberries and the way their tart and sweet components play off of each other. They create a perfect balance, and when they’re backed by a moist and buttery cake… well, there’s not much more you could ask for from a baked good.
The batter here is pretty basic. There’s butter, flour, eggs, sugar… the usual. But there’s also Greek yogurt involved, and that’s largely what’s responsible for the incredibly moist crumb. Lemon zest and lemon juice bring in a bright zing, and fresh raspberries add a delicate sweetness. And then there’s an easy and sweet lemony glaze that gets dribbled over the whole thing. You technically could skip that step, but why would you?
And did we mention that it comes together in one bowl? It’s true. Just one bowl and a few basic ingredients stand between you and this lovely little cake. Or bread. Or loaf. Call it what you want… you can’t talk with food in your mouth anyway!
