Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time1 hr
- 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt until combined.
In a large bowl using an electric mixer, blend together the 1 cup sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs in one at a time followed by mixing in the lemon peel.
Turn the mixer on low speed and slowly add the flour mixture followed by the milk until well combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 1 hour. Allow the bread to cool in the pan on a rack.
In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup sugar and the lemon juice. Pierce the top of the bread all over with a skewer or the handle of a wooden spoon and spoon the lemon glaze over the bread while it is still warm.
Allow the bread to cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
