Yum, Yum

Our tree was just jam-packed with lemons this year. So I decided to make some Lemon Bread the other day. Oh boy did it turn out yummy! Here's the recipe:

Lemon Bread:

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
Cream together.

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
Grated peel of whole lemon

Bake in loaf pan, greased and floured. 350* for 1 hour (be sure to watch it as mine only took about 40-45 min) Remove from oven and prick top with fork. Pour over the following mixture:
1/2 cup sugar
Juice of one lemon

Optional: Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Now the best part- Share with those you love & ENJOY!

This is not on my diet, but looks so delightful! My DH loves lemon anything (and so do I). This will pair nicely with my vege soup tonight. Thank you!!!
I don't have fresh lemons, but I have a bunch of store bought.
We just got rid of our snow, no lemon trees here in Chicago.
Thanks much. I love your birdhouses too!!! Nice blog!
