i frequently share about the kids. what i have not shared is that both struggle in school. not at all for lack of trying. as a parent it is so hard to watch your child do their absolute best and still fall short. this past school  year has been a hard one.

there were days i didn’t think we were going to make it. more days than i care to count.

i used my  pullman loaf pan [5] for this bread, but a standard loaf pan works as well. fresh raspberries work best in this bread, but you could use frozen. they will release a bit more juice and tend to sink to the bottom of the batter. if using frozen raspberries, toss the them in a little bit of flour before adding to the batter. you may also need to increase the baking time  a few minutes.

this raspberry lemon quick bread recipe is adapted from king arthur flour [6]; the original recipe calls for lemon oil [7]. i used lemon zest instead, but definitely think i’ll try the oil next time.

i know she was referring to yeast bread, but baking this loaf of raspberry lemon quick bread did the trick for me.
