Orange-Lemon Loaf & True Lemon Giveaway

The one thing that keeps me going through the winter? The vastly available citrus. Oranges, Lemons, Limes, Grapefruits, Tangelos, Clementines, and more! They add tartness to desserts, they brighten up a simple loaf cake, and ultimately just make winter bearable.

Welcome to the Virtual Potluck and True Lemon #citruslove! 
What's True Lemon you ask? True Lemon products are basically the essence of citrus fruits, dehydrated and converted into powder form. All True products are 100% natural with no artificial ingredients or sweeteners, preservatives,sodium or gluten. True Lemon's ingredients are the same as found in a lemon: Citric Acid, Lemon Juice, Lemon Oil and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).

This is a fantastic product to have around the house, not only for making drinks and cocktails, but as an added flavoring to your baked goods, as well as marinades, sauces, and seasonings in cooking.

True Lemonades comes in Original Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade. True Unsweetened & Naturally Sweet products include: Lemon, Orange, and Lime. They also come in handy shakers, perfect for shaking on guacamole!

After having developed a few recipes with the True Lemon products, my latest favorite is this Orange-Lemon Pudding Loaf, a perfect treat made with white whole wheat flour, a touch of sugar, fresh orange slices and laced in the batter, True Lemon.

Orange-Lemon Pudding Loaf
Makes 1-2 mini-loaves

1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
