  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest, divided
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar



Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 350. Beat softened butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add 1 cup granulated sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until just blended after each addition.

2. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture, alternately with milk, beating at low speed just until blended, beginning and ended with flour mixture. Stir in 1 tbsp lemon zest. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 8x4 inch loaf pan.

3. Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until a wooden pick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan to a wire rack, and cool completely.

4. Stir together powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth; spoon overtop of bread, letting excess drip down sides. Stir together remaining 1 tbsp lemon zest and 1 tbsp granulated sugar; sprinkle on top of bread.
