Pickled Lemon Spelt Bread Post 3

Pickled Lemon Spelt Bread

Topped with a Pickled Lemon Glaze
      Now that you know about Pickled lemons,  I thought I would treat you to a few recipes about what to do with them.  This is a wonderful recipe that is delightfully lemony. The pickled lemons give it a stronger lemon taste than zest or lemon juice would do. Pickled lemons can be added to muffins, cakes, pancakes, etc. With this recipe and others, I would recommend blending the lemons. It does amazing things when it is blended with the other ingredients.

     In this recipe I used spelt flour. You could use gluten free flours, and have great success also. WonderFlour would work great. Traditionally lemon bread is yellow and lighter in color. Using whole grains makes it darker, but does not change the delightful texture, and it gives it a richer flavor.  The way I always judge if I succeed with a new recipe, is how fast it is eaten up. If it goes fast I know I did the right thing. If it sets on the counter for hours and hours, I know I have done something wrong. This bread disappeared very quickly. It is easy to make, and other than the sugar glaze, it is a healthy choice for a dessert or snack.

Looks good enough to eat.  It is~ believe me.
