A Breeze

I love anything lemon. I have had some requests for lemon cakes and it made me remember lemon bread that a very dear lady I worked for at a wonderful kitchen store gave me. I used to make it for the store to sell, wrapped gaily in ribbon! A perfect accompaniment to afternoon tea, to give as a hostess gift, or an after school snack! Enjoy and remember this is not low fat!

  • 1 lb butter
  • 8 eggs
  • 6.5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups sugar
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 4 tsp baking powder

Lemon Juice Recipe

  • 1 cup sugar

Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and lemon zest. Mix dry ingredients and add alternately with milk to the creamed mixture. 

Grease 8 small loaf pans. Distribute batter evenly between the pans. Bake at 325 degrees or until tester comes out clean--at least 20-25 minutes for smaller loaves. 

Mix the 1 cup of sugar and the lemon juice together. With a fork or cake tester, poke holes in the warm bread. Pour juice mixture over the bread and let cool.
