My family always requests this light, tender bread with a hint of lemon. This loaf is so scrumptious that it complements almost any meal. I serve slices with a creamy lemon spread for an early-morning treat or late-night snack that's simply dreamy. -Barbara Strickler, Syracuse, Indiana

- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 to 3 tablespoons warm milk (70° to 80°)

"This was an easy recipe. However, the lemon taste in the bread was almost not noticeable. The lemon spread made the whole thing work."
