I am not much of a coffee drinker!
BUT, I am a big cake eater.
My Copycat Starbucks Lemon Loaf Cake is one of my all-time favorite cakes.
Let me give you a little behind the scenes on this cake love!
I was always taking my daughter to Starbucks and I would never purchase anything for myself.
I am not into coffee but Baby Girl loves it so I just went with it.
Then, one day I became a believer.
Baby Girl was tired of eating and drinking in my face and me giving all those coffee addicts the “side-eye” while I waited for her drink.
I remember it like it was yesterday, Baby Girl handed me a piece of lemon loaf cake and said “Ma’ eat it, it will make the wait happier!”
I reluctantly ate the cake.
I WAS HOOKED!
That cake was moist, lemony, did I mention moist!
I would say I became so addicted to eating Starbucks Lemon Loaf Cake that for about a year straight that was the only cake I would eat.
This is why I had to learn how to make it myself.
I’ve made it from scratch, I was not impressed.
Then I decided on boxed cake mix doctored up might be the key to recreating my cake fantasies.
I was correct and although I still pick up a slice from Starbucks every so often, I find that I love my copycat version just as much as the original Starbucks version.
