RECIPE BACKSTORY
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.
