Lemon Loaf

I hope you’re not sick of all the lemon recipes….I still have plenty of lemons to go 🙂

This recipe is super easy and fantastic to make as morning tea.

You will need:

125g softened butter

1 cup of castor sugar and another 1/2 cup later for the syrup

the zest of 1 large lemon, grated finely and then juiced

2 eggs

1.5 cups of self-raising flour; and

1/2 cup of milk

Start by creaming the butter, sugar and lemon zest

Add your 2 eggs, beating well after each addition

Add milk and self raising flour in batches and stir until combined.

Add batter to a well lined loaf tin

Have a good smell…

Bake in a moderate oven for approx 50mins.

As soon as the loaf has cooked, brush on a mix of 1/3 cup of lemon juice and 1/2 cup of castor sugar.

If I am taking this loaf out with me, I brush on the mixture and then wrap the loaf in foil. If it is for you to gobble up that day… simply leave the loaf in the tin and cover it with a tea towel to keep it warm.

    Mmm, I could never be tired of lemon recipes. It’s my favorite flavor (even more than chocolate). This sounds full of that yummy taste.
