Lemon Bread

This is a very good lemon bread that doesn’t take a lot of work. I like to serve it with fresh sliced strawberries or fresh-frozen strawberries spooned over the slice. We have a couple of bags of fresh-frozen raspberries left in the freezer. I believe tonight’s lemon bread will have them spooned over it!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lemon, rind of
1 lemon, juice of
1⁄4 cup sugar
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until creamy. Blend in milk.
In another bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and lemon rind. Pour into batter. Stir to moisten.
Scrape into greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Bake in 350f degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes.
Cool in pan for 5 minutes.
Remove to rack and while still hot, with a toothpick poke holes all over the top of the loaf, and spoon glaze evenly over. Cool.
Combine lemon juice and sugar in saucepan. Stir and heat till sugar is dissolved. Spoon evenly over top of hot loaf.
