Hoodwinked by the Blueberry Loaf!

Yesterday Gracie had a fabulous idea that she wanted to bake Ethan an afternoon treat! She has been helping me more in the kitchen lately, so her willingness to bake didn't surprise me. I had this recipe I had been wanting to try out and thankfully we had all of the ingredients on hand.  I do have to say, I really adore the fact that she was doing something sweet for her brother and talked about making sure we made it extra yummy for him.  Unfortunately, I was so busy cooking with her and keeping her from sticking her fingers in the batter, I didn't get a single picture. Oh well, we were having fun. I have to say I LOVE this loaf. It is delicious and so moist! I will be making this again because I know it will make a great gift with some plastic wrap and a pretty bow.

As soon as we picked Ethan up, the first thing out of Gracie's mouth is ,"Ethan, I have a sweet surprise for you".  Once we got home, they both were anxious to sit down and have a piece. However, Ethan and Gracie had opposite opinions about the lemon blueberry cake. The pictures are a little wonky because my settings kept changing but you can definitely tell what Gracie thinks of her masterpiece.

You can see the excitement on their faces.

Gracie takes a big bite...

...and this is the point where she realizes she is not a fan of tart desserts.

She got upset that it doesn't taste like what she thought it would taste like,
while Ethan totally takes it off her hands.

She leaves pretty angry, yet he continues to eat.

"I don't know what her problem is? It is really good!"

Lexie concurs!

I definitely share your sentiment on this loaf and I'm pretty sure by the time we left that weekend, it had grown on Gracie! LOL
