Lemon Bread

Posted by moderndaygourmet on September 3, 2007

This is another one from the Christmas Gifts Good Enough to Eat book that I have been making practically my whole life. It’s designed as a gift recipe which is why it’s in baby loaf pans. 3 baby loaves equals one full size loaf so you can of course make a full size loaf of this just as well. Not sure what the cooking time would come out to be though; you’d need to keep an eye on it. My guess would be anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. I’m sure I have made this as a full size loaf at some time in the past but I just can’t remember how I adjusted the baking time.

2 teaspoons lemon peel
3 tablespoons lemon juice
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons milk
1 cup walnuts, chopped finely

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Beat butter and sugar until smooth. Stir in lemon peel and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Add eggs and beat well. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir or beat slowly, adding milk a little at a time. Beat until smooth. Stir nuts into batter.

Spoon batter into 3 baby loaf pans, filling 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until done.
