This little loaf cake from Baking with Julia is what you need when you want something shortcakey, as in strawberry shortcake, or really, a partner for any fruit. But it is also good plain, and probably good toasted, as the recipe suggested, but I can't report on that with authority...I got distracted with my multi-tasking sometime after popping a nugget into the toaster. (At least the nugget was small enough to only start a teeny tiny, mini fire...I still love you, Dualit.)
This is a nice, basic cake, but I like a little more lemon flavor and will make sure I have LOTS of zest the next time I make it.
