This lemon bread is amazing, not too sweet, not too heavy and just the right among of lemon goodness.
I have worked my way through my Costco bag of lemons. As much as I love lemons I think I am getting a little lemoned out. Usually I will choose lemon over chocolate any day but today I was actually craving a little chocolate!
Today’s lemon recipe was submitted by my friend Meg. Meg is not only a great cook but she is an amazing photographer.
When it comes to sweet breads I usually make banana bread – maybe because I have the BEST banana bread recipe but now I have another great option – Lemon Bread.
Meg’s lemon bread is not too sweet or heavy. The glaze you pour over the warm baked bread is the best part.
If you were one of those kids who never ate the crust of their bread you will change your mind when you taste this one! I ate both of the end pieces of the bread just so I could have more crust!
So grab a few lemons and enjoy some lemon bread! Thanks to Laurie Dry who also sent in a lemon bread recipe. I’ll try Laurie’s next time because it makes two loaves – one for me and one to giveaway!
