Lemon Bread Recipe
  • In a large bowl, combine all the bread ingredients.
  • Mix the ingredients together using an electric mixer on medium speed.
  • Use rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl while mixing to make sure that the ingredients are well blended.
  • Once the ingredients are well blended pour the batter into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan.
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F for 45 to 50 minutes.
  • The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • After removing the bread from the oven, prepare a glaze by following the instructions below.
  • Combine all the glaze ingredients in a small bowl and stir until well blended.
  • Pour the sauce over the bread while it is still warm.
  • Allow the bread to cool for 15 minutes and then run a knife around the edges of the loaf pan to loosen the bread from the pan.
  • Place on a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
  • When cooled, slice and serve.
