Lemon Bread

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk

Glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, lemon juice and peel. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Pour into a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Combine glaze ingredients. Remove bread from pan; immediately drizzle with glaze. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
