This bread is easy to make. The addition of fresh lemon zest to the batter and fresh lemon juice to the glaze makes it taste super fresh -- even in the middle of winter! Great gift bread.

Ingredients

1
cup butter, softened
2
cups sugar
4
large eggs
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1
cup milk (or buttermilk, if desired)
3
cups flour
zest (grated rind) of 1 lemon
1
cup chopped pecans

GLAZE:

1
cup granulated sugar
Juice of 3 lemons

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350° F. Coat 2 loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2 Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. Sift dry ingredients together and add alternately with milk. Blend well.
  • 3 Fold in lemon zest and nuts. Pour into prepared loaf pans. Bake at 350° F for 50-55 minutes. Bread is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 4 While bread bakes, mix glaze ingredients. Let stand and stir often. When bread is done, cool 5 minutes in pan, then remove bread from pans and place on a cooling rack. While bread is still warm, pour glaze mixture over top. Let cool completely before slicing.
