This is a delicately flavored dessert or sweet breakfast bread. The texture is like pound cake. Very good!

Lemon Loaf
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
4 eggs
3 cups bread or AP flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
The rind of 2 lemons, grated and minced
1/4 cup (or more) lemon juice

Juice of 2 lemons
1/2 cup sugar

Oven to 350.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between additions. Blend in milk.

In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and lemon rind. Pour into batter. Stir just till moistened.

Pour into 2 greased 9x5 loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes.

Combine glaze ingredients and heat until sugar dissolves.

Cool loaves for five minutes. Poke holes in the top with a toothpick.

Spoon glaze over evenly.
