This quick bread is bursting with fresh lemon flavor!

- Recipe -

● 1 cup sugar

● 1/3 cup butter, melted

● 1/4 cup lemon juice

● 2 eggs

● 1-1/2 cups flour

● 1 t. baking powder

● 1/2 t. salt

● 1/2 cup buttermilk

● 1 T. lemon zest


● 1/2 cup powdered sugar

● 1/4 cup lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 ̊F. Spray loaf pan with baking spray, make parchment sleeve and spray again.

1. With a spatula, combine the sugar, butter and 1/4 c. lemon juice. Mix in eggs one at a time.

2. In small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

3. In bowl with sugar and butter, stir in the lemon zest. Then add half of the flour mixture and half of the buttermilk. Stir a little bit, then add the rest of the flour and buttermilk. Mix until just combined.

4. Pour into loaf pan. Place on rimmed baking sheet and bake for 1 hour.

5. A few minutes before taking the bread out of the oven, make the glaze by mixing together the powdered sugar and lemon juice. Set aside.

6. Test to make sure the bread is baked through by using a skewer. Once the bread is baked, use the skewer to poke holes all throughout the bread. Spoon all of the glaze on and let the bread sit for 1 hour. Then you can remove the bread from the pan by first running a knife along the long sides of the pan, then lifting up with the parchment sleeves. Let the bread cool on a rack.
