Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced (reserve the juice for the glaze
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Directions

  • In large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Blend in milk.
  • In second bowl thoroughly stir the flour, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Pour over batter and stir to moisten. Spoon into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until toothpick tests clean.
  • While the loaf bakes, make the glaze. Combine juice of one lemon with 1/4 cup sugar. Heat to dissolve the sugar.
  • Remove loaf from oven, de-pan and glaze while still hot.

Notes

This lemon bread is to-die-for. Don't skip the glaze, it's a must, and don't use bottled lemon juice, fresh is the way to go. I love this in the morning but it's equally delicious in the afternoon with a cup of tea or even for dessert. In blueberry season I add blueberries for the best ever Blueberry-Lemon bread.
