I have made countless loaves of this wonderful bread to serve for ladies teas- it is moist, bursting with berries, and the lemon glaze should not be skipped. It freezes very well, and slices so nice. It has the texture of a pound cake. I have also used half blueberries and half raspberries- which is really yummy too!

shame on me for not rating this excellant recipe earlier. I have made this countless times for church tea parties- it freezes well, and slices nicely. I line my pan with non stick foil, and pour the glaze over the bread while in the pan. When cool- I can lift it out and remove the foil, this allows all the glaze to absorb into the bread- even the crust piece is yummy! This bursts with lemon flavor.
