I often bake this sunshiny-sweet bread when company's due. It has a pound cake-like texture. —Kathy Scott, Lingle, Wyoming

OMG!!!!This quickbread was just bursting with lemon flavor. I didn't change a thing nor would I. Bravo. In fact I'm going to use the glaze for some sugar cookies with sprinkles I think they will be delicious.

AMAZING!! My family enjoys lemon so we LOVE this recipe! Truly a quick bread, the longest part is grating the lemon peel!!:) Making these for Christmas gifts this year for my grandmother and great grandmother along with a hand-knitted dishcloth! I'm sure it will be a big hit!!

Wonderful recipe and easy!! I followed this exactly, but did add a bit of lemon zest to the glaze, and also put the glaze over it while it was still warm. Very good!!!

MY REVIEW

A post script: I drizzled the lemon glaze over the baked bread before allowing the bread to cool 10 minutes! When I added my eggs to creamed sugar & butter or shortening, I added the 3 Tbsp. milk-if using 2 eggs, you can decrease this amount to about 1 Tbsp. + 1-1/2 tsp. milk!
