Decided I needed a distraction a few weekends back so I went a little bake crazy. I made two banana breads and two lemon loaves. I’ll just say Mr. Canuck and my co-workers were happy to get free food.
Anyways, I wanted to share with you the lemon loaf recipe since I had always shared the banana bread recipe. So, here it is!
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 50-60 minutes
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups flour (white or brown)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening
Grated rind of 1 lemon
Juice half a lemon and mix with 1/4 cup sugar.
Cream shortening; beat in sugar gradually. Add eggs, beating well; stir in rind. Mix flour, salt, and baking powder together. Blend in dry ingredients with the wet ingredients while added the milk slowly. Mix everything well.
Bake in a greased loaf pan in an oven at 350F or 176C for 50-60 minutes.
Remove from oven. Spread glaze over top immediately. Let cool for ten minutes and then remove from pan to cool completely. Slice and enjoy!
