i baked poppyseed cake and gingersnaps on monday and yesterday i baked a lemon bread for craft circle.
this recipe comes from my aunt patty and is very lemony and moist with a lemon/sugary glaze.
this bread has been made for many a shower, party and event and is perfect with tea.
i had not made it in a few years and after being gifted some lemons from a friend’s backyard tree in louisiana i immediately thought of this favorite.
aunt patty’s lemon bread
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 rind lemon
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
preheat oven to 350 degrees
cream butter and sugar together. add eggs, milk and lemon rind.
sift together dry ingredients and add to butter mixture.
pour in to greased and floured loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes.
while bread bakes make a glaze of 1/2 cup sugar and juice of 1 lemon.
while bread is still warm, pop out of pan and spoon glaze over.
