Glazed Lemon Bread

Very lemony, very tasty and very easy to make. My mother once won a contest with her Glazed Lemon Bread recipe. It's a wonderfully moist bread, saturated with lemony flavor, that's great for breakfast, as a dessert or just as a snack. I prefer my mother's recipe over other lemon bread recipes because the glaze is allowed to saturate the bread all the way through...also, heating the glaze to melt the sugar helps it go on smoothly, unlike the usual method which is "grainy" from unmelted sugar.

Excellent recipe but I made 2 changes I substituted the white sugar for Brown and the half cup milk I substituted it with half cup bailey caremel and after the cake was made it was not 1 day and the cake was finished.

My grandmother used a recipe very similar to this one except she mixed powdered sugar with lemon juice for the glaze and therefore didn't have to heat it to meet the sugar ;)

Who ever wrote this, you may want to get a copyright on the recipe. It proved to be super popular at a function I went to, with people asking who made it and where to get the recipe. The key to perfect this recipe is to do precisely everything as it's written. AAAAAA+

Excellent recipe. For those whose bread fell in the middle.... My friend who is a chef said use absolutely fresh just opened leaveners (baking soda and powder) and to rotate loaf halfway through baking.

Loved this, and so much easier to make than I thought it would be. Definitely will be a favorite in our house!

YUM!! This recipe has become my neighborhood favorite for summer cook outs!

I don't know why but it did not taste right! None of the family liked this but I think I made the syrup too early as it does not take long to make! Quite disappointing!

Love it! So easy to make!

Nice! Will recommend anyone try it.

Very nice. First time I ever baked in my life and it came out perfect ! And so delicious. Thanks for the recipe !
