  • Lemon Bread
  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup sifted flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Lemon Glaze
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (~the juice of 1 lemon)
  1. Heat your oven to 325°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar and shortening.
  3. Add the eggs, lemon rind and milk, and mix until combined.
  4. Stir in the sifted flour, baking powder and salt, and mix until combined. The mixture should be a stiff batter that keeps its shape.
