  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 4 tablespoons well drained crushed pineapple
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  4. Add the eggs one at a time, making sure to beat for one minute after each addition.
  5. Beat in the sage leaves, flowers, lemon peel and crushed pineapple.
  6. Stir the dry ingredients together and add to the butter mixture. Fold these together gently, until just blended.
  7. Pour into loaf pans.
  8. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until golden brown (wooden pick inserted into center will come out clean).
