Glazed Lemon Bread

This bread makes a wonderful gift for friends and neighbors during the Christmas season.


12 servings


1/4 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons granulated (white) sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the lemon peel. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.

Blend the flour mixture into the egg mixture, alternately with the milk; stir just to combine. Fold in the nuts; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean.

In a small bowl, dissolve 2 tablespoons sugar in the lemon juice. After loaf has cooled for 10 minutes, spoon glaze over loaf.
