Growing up I loved when my mom would make Lemon Bread… it’s one of those addictive recipes and because it’s a fruit based bread you can easily rationalize having a slice with breakfast.
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
Icing Ingredients and Directions:
Combine 2 tbs lemon juice with 3/4 cups confectioner sugar. Mix until smooth.
1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans. Combine sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla and lemon extracts in a large bowl; mix well.
2. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture and milk to sugar mixture alternately, mixing well after each addition.
3. Bake loaves for 45 min. or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosen edges from sides of pans. Cool loaves in pans for 10 min. Place on wire racks.
4. Drizzle icing over warm loaves. I made mine in a bundt pan which took about about 65 minutes.
