I know that when you think of Starbucks, you think "coffee"...but when I think of the Starbucks Lemon Loaf, I think "tea" (yes - I am one of those rare people who can easily switch back and forth between coffee and tea). But ok - I guess it goes great with coffee.
Regardless of your beverage of choice when eating a slice of Starbucks Lemon Loaf, it is SO much cheaper to make it at home! It's really not rocket science to make it, but if you just do some simple planning, you can make almost an entire loaf of this Starbucks Lemon Loaf recipe for about the cost of a single slice at Starbucks. Go ahead - get your morning coffee from Starbucks (if you must - I make my own coffee at home and probably only buy Starbucks about once every 6 weeks)...but start packing your own lemon loaf!
This recipe will make 2 loaves and, if you have a family like mine that won't eat ANYTHING, you can just easily freeze the 2nd loaf for later, Better yet - slice the loaves once they are done, freeze the slices individually and you will have a fabulous "grab & go" breakfast!
