Day 324 – Lemon Bread

The craft book I bought yesterday had crafts and even some recipes.  I am trying out a new recipe for Lemon Bread.  Here’s the recipe:

1  3/4 cup flour                          3/4 cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder                1/4 tsp. salt

1 egg, beaten                           1 cup milk

1/4 cup vegetable oil                2 tbsp. shredded lemon peel(1 lemon)

3 tbsp. lemon juice                   1 tbsp. sugar

Mix first 4 dry ingredients and make well in the center.  In separate bowl, mix egg, milk, oil and 1 tbsp. of the lemon juice.  Pour wet mixture into well in center of dry mixture and mix until moist(stir as little as possible-may be lumpy). Fold in lemon peel.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes in loaf pan lined with parchment paper.  Mix remaining lemon juice with 1 tbsp. sugar.  Brush on bread while warm. I used coated baking pans; I did not use the parchment paper.  I also sprayed PAM in the pans. Next time I would do the same, but flour the pans after using the PAM.  I also used a mini loaf pan and a medium-sized loaf pan instead of a larger one.

    Oh my that looks so yummy! I love lemon bread. So, how was it?

    • It was great! I used the leftover lemon sugar to smear on each slice, but I think adding butter to the lemon sugar would taste better. My lemon tree is ready to pick….and I still have tons of frozen lemon juice from last year!
