This was pretty good. Not lemony enough for me, so I added some lemon juice the second time I tried it. That helped, but I would like a stronger lemon flavor.

This is really not a bread at all. It is a rich pound cake that makes just enough for two! The cake is subtly flavored, but the glaze adds a real zing!
