There are a lot of sweet treats I can offer my little Harmia. From cakes, cookies, to ice cream and more.
I’m sure she’ll love them all.
But I wanted to give her something special for this adventure, a homemade treat.
Commenters, on the previous sweets and treats, shared their favorite homemade goodies. And they inspired me to bake something nice for Harmia.
But I struggled on which treat to make. I wanted it to be tasty but it also had to be quick & easy for me to make.
So I headed straight for the cabinet in my kitchen where we stuff all the recipes.
As I placed my hand on the cabinet handle a feeling of dread came over me. This cabinet, on more than one occasion, has dump all its contents on me and left a mess all over the kitchen floor.
I didn’t want a repeat but I knew I had to open it to find something for Harmia. So with a brave face, I open the door . . . BOOM!
Yep, just as I had feared. An avalanche of books & paper came pouring out from the cabinet. Hitting me on the head before scattering all across the kitchen floor.
I know I need to Marie Kondo the cabinet but I’ll save it for another day.
As I gather all the recipe books and piles of paper, I noticed several Grandma’s Kitchen: Treasured Family Recipes cards.
I started remembering how we use to get these cards in the mail back in the day.
One of the cards, a lemon pound cake recipe piqued my interest. It looked tasty and I couldn't remember ever having a lemon treat unless you count lemonade as a treat.
After glancing over the recipe, ingredients and prep time (15 minutes), I felt I could make it for Harmia.
It was surprisingly easy. You mix all the ingredients, pour it into a loaf pan and bake it.
Harmia ate it! But she wished it was sweeter (the girl is a sugar addict).
I don’t like to encourage her sweet tooth but I have to agree with her. The pound cake was missing something. I wish it had more of the lemony flavor.
The recipe recommends fresh fruits and sweeten whipped cream if you want an extra sweet taste. It’s something to consider if we try it again.
But Harmia, doesn’t want to eat the lemon pound cake again. She demands something new & sweet for her next treat.
I had fun making the recipe even if it wasn’t a favorite of Harmia. I’ll just have to try harder for her next treat. I mustn't disappoint the princess.
