Fabulous Refreshing Lemon Loaf

Freshly beaming with pride from making my own brown rice flour!! It's the simple things! So anyway, I wanted to use it on a nice citrus recipe . This healthy refreshing loaf is great for morning / afternoon tea and gluten free .
The DIY grounded brown rice is not as fine and powdery as the one you can buy from the store but it still does a great job for baking .
The loaf is very refreshing and zesty. The edge turned out a bit grainy/crunchy (similar to low course polenta texture) however inside the loaf is a nice smooth texture .
The citrus flavor seemed to developed more intensity stored overnight in the refrigerator.
I love mine when it smear with creamy butter and served with a nice cup of tea. Divine ~ Enjoy!

While baking, you can prepared your lemon sauce. In a bowl add lemon juice, sugar and mix well until the sugar is dissolved. Keep grated lemon zest in a bowl for garnish.
Poke lemony loaf with a skewer or knife to see if loaf is ready (when it's baked perfectly, the knife / skewer should come out clean without any mixture clamp to it ) 1. Remove loaf from pan and pop onto a wire rack to cool. 2.Use a chop stick and poke cake with mini holes (shown in picture 3) 4. Use a teaspoon and spoon your lemon sauce on top of the loaf and sprinkle with grated lemon zest
