    Best of Lemon

    Jeanne Porter from Huntertown, IN

    This moist delicious bread is wonderful with the tart flavor of lemon. My 88 year old mother-in-law stated that it is the best she ever had. Even the ends of the bread is as great as the center.

    The flavor and texture was very good. Easy to make up. The glaze added the extra lemon taste without overpowering. Have made it in a bread pan and in a cake pan. Prefer the 8 inch square cake pan. Lemon lovers will love this lemon-ey delight.

    Added Lemon Peel

    BRIDGET Merdan from LORETTO, MN

    After reading several other reviews I decided to add some fresh gated lemon peel to the recipe. With the extra lemon peel it had a nice lemon flavor. I made it in a star shaped tube pan and it worked out well. The cake was a hit at the 'English Tea' themed bridal shower I threw.

    Lemon Tea Bread

    Pam Ellstrom from ELSBERRY, MO

    This was ok. I changed the recipe a bit the second time I made it. I always use powdered sugar & lemon juice as my glaze, but I use more juice than most people use. When the bread is just out of the oven I poke holes into the bread then I pour the glaze on top. The way I make it or lemon pound cake, I always come back home with any empty plate.

    okay

    Nicole Reza from BOWLING GREEN, OH

    I did not find this bread very flavorful. My family like it with whip cream and blueberries on top but I didn't think much of it.

    delicious lemon bread!!

    ADRIA HEMBREE from TACOMA, WA

    This was so simple and so delicious. I did use applesauce instead of oil, and it turned out so moist and super tasty. The glaze was an added bonus.

    Laura Pond from CHICAGO, IL

    I was hoping that this bread would have a strong lemon flavor. However, most of the flavor comes from the glaze, which is very sweet. I would make this again, but am still looking for a better lemon bread recipe.

    This recipe went together very quickly. I baked a loaf to take to the office and I let my husband try it, he said I should leave the bread at home. He liked it very much. Several co-workers told me they liked it also. I will definitely be making this bread again!

    I made this for a luncheon on my job and it was a big sucess. I used real lemon juice and added extra juice & essence. Also, for a glaze i used real lemon juice and powered sugar. Now everyone has the recipe. Thanks this was wonderful.

    Lemon Tea Bread

    Melissa Cadwell from CAZENOVIA, NY

    When I first looked at this recipe I thought it would be more like pound cake. I was wrong. I found it to be low in flavor. I did have some of the lemon and sugar sauce left over and added powdered sugar to it and created a glaze, this did add more flavor. Even though I did not like this my kids and husband loved it.

    Easy and low fat!

    MARTY HEINTZ from OPELOUSAS, LA

    I replaced the sugar with Splenda to lower the calorie count and the bread is still moist and great-tasting. It is also extremely easy to make and is quick enough to be put together while I am fixing dinner. Bake it while you eat and you have a nice, hot dessert when you finish cleaning the kitchen.

    DEBORAH HARVEY from PROVIDENCE, RI

    I love lemons and this bread is moist and delicious as is but... I added a cup of dried cranberries to the batter ~ even better! I also baked them in miniature loaf pans, they were a welcome treat at the nursing home where I volunteer! One of my clients suggested poppy seeds ~ I'll try them next time. Thanks for the recipe:~)
