Welcome to The Recipe Box Swap! The month is a no-theme month, meaning you can post your favorite recipe--anything goes! Simply post it on your own blog and then add your post URL to the auto-link at the bottom of this post. I have found some of the best recipes from the swap and I am so happy to have added some new family favorites to our recipe box!
This month I am sharing the recipe for Lemon Bread:
I love this stuff! So lemony and sweet.
1-3/4 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 tsp. shredded lemon peel
1 TB. lemon juice
2 TB. lemon juice
1 TB. sugar
Stir together the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl combine the egg, milk, oil, and 1 TB. lemon juice. Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture and stir until combined. Add the shredded lemon peel and stir.
Pour batter into greased 8X4X2 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean.
While the bread is baking, stir the 2 TB. lemon juice and 1 TB. sugar together. Sugar should be dissolved before brushing on the bread.
When the bread is done, brush the lemon juice mixture on the bread (it will seem like a lot, but go ahead and use it all). Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Wrap the bread and wait a few hours to eat. The flavor gets better as it sits.
