OLD FASHIONED LEMON BREAD

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 12
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cp whole milk
  • 1/2 cp oil
  • 2 t grated lemon peel
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 whole lemon

Directions

  • Preheat oven to (350) and lightly grease 8x5 loaf pan.
  • In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, oil and lemon peel.
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir enough to moisten the mixture.
  • Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake 40-45 min or until bread is golden.
  • You can test for doneness by poking it with a skewer.
  • If it comes out clean, it's done. If not, bake for 5 more minutes.
  • Let cool about 10 min and poke holes with wooden skewer all the way through the bread so the glaze can penetrate throughout.
  • Make glaze, by dissolving sugar in juice over medium heat. Add grated lemon peel to the glaze for added flavor. Drizzle glaze over bread. Let cool before serving.

Notes

I love lemons, the smell, taste, texture. Everything about it makes it so great! I found this recipe several years ago and then made some changes to make it my own.

For a variation, try lime instead of lemon, or do what I did, combine lemon AND lime in one!
