Carolyn’s Lemon Bread Makes 1 8x4 loaf
1/2 c butter
1 c. sugar
zest of one lemon
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c milk I used almond milk
1/2 c chopped walnuts Optional. I didn’t add these
1/2 c sugar
juice of 1 lemon
Directions Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees F, or 325 F for glass pan**
Cream butter with sugar, till light and fluffy. Add 2 eggs and lemon zest. Beat well. Whisk flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl. Alternately, add the flour mixture and 1/2 c milk, ending with dry ingredients, to creamed sugar and eggs.
Pour batter into an 8x4 pan sprayed with cooking spray and dusted with flour. Bake at 350 degree oven, until pick inserted in middle comes out clean.
After removing the loaf from the oven, pour glaze over the bread with sugar dissolved in the juice of the lemon. Cool on rack.
**I used a glass pan, so I baked in 325 F oven for about 1 hr. 10 min.
